RockFire Returns!

June 17, 2014

RockFire Returns June 27th-28th

Free Tickets!

 

Our third annual RockFire Festival will be held the weekend of June 27-28. On Friday night the 27th, join us for a guided night mountain bike ride or a round of glow dark disk golf followed by a bonfire. On Saturday the 28th, the amazing nighttime RockFire experience begins at 7 with a concert by Bow Thayer, followed by the 8:30 Iron Guild metal pouring performance, and at 9:30 the FireWalk‘s traditional opening Bagpipe Fanfare.

Thousands of candles and luminaries with scores of bonfires and campfires light a 2 mile pathway with six live performance stages and dance floor set in the quarries at Millstone Hill combine to make an unforgettable experience.

Please support our efforts to preserve the land containing our trail network by attending RockFire or even better, volunteer to help with preparations for the event or by manning one of our many fires and get free tickets!  For more information see our web site RockFirevt.com or if you would like more information on volunteering, call Pierre at 802 279 2221.

 

MTB Day Passes Now Available for Online Purchase

May 21, 2014

ticketrollWe are pleased to announce that you can now purchase your day passes for mountain biking at Millstone directly on our website via Paypal, with the added convenience of paying by credit/debit card or electronic check.  Your payment receipt, received via email, can serve as your proof of purchase.

If you buy your pass online, you can head directly on to the trails.  Or, if you happen to come to the hill when the MTA shop is closed, just hop onto our website from your mobile device, buy your day pass through Paypal’s secure transaction process and you’re good to go!

If you are not an MTA member, a day pass is required for mountain biking on any of the Millstone Trails. Maintaining the trails requires lots of work, material, and tools. Your day pass purchase goes directly to the trails, giving our trail crew the resources they need to build the trails you ride. Thank you again for enjoying and helping to support the Millstone Trails.
