Description

Lamson Farm is a large parcel of property including various hay fields and deciduous-conifer mix forest.  The farm was established by the early settlers of Mont Vernon and is now maintained for preservation, education, and recreation.  Lamson Farm is also the home of Mont Vernon’s celebration of local history and farming called Lamson Farm Day.  The trails are a combination of double track roads and single track.  The trails offer gently rolling hills with a few places that are rocky and rooty.  There are a few stone walls to cross, but they are easily walked. There are several short trails that can be pieced together to make a great hour plus ride. The Lansom Farm trail system is about 8 miles long.

Notes:

Beware of hunters in the fall.  Wearing orange in the fall is highly recommended.  Lamson Farm is a great place to ride when it is wet because the trails tend to be high terrain and are seldom muddy. Please be respectful of hikers, skiers and equestrians because the trails are multi-use.  ATVs and dirt bikers are occasionally seen.
