Public trails for our community






Fellowship of the Wheel is a non-profit that advocates for and maintains 120+ miles (8 networks in 7 towns) of public multi-use trails in Chittenden County, VT. We work with private and municipal landowners to create responsibly-built, sustainable trails for the greater community to enjoy their surrounding environment through recreation. FOTW completes over 3500 hours of trail work each season, through the direction of the Trail Crew, with over 1000 hours of volunteer commitment. Funding sources include financial donations from local businesses, partnerships with similar organizations, grants, fundraisers, and membership dues.

By advocating for outdoor recreation opportunities, building with the most sustainable practices, and educating the community we are able to provide people of all ages and fitness levels a chance to appreciate their environment. Trails pass beautiful scenery and historic sites, they link towns, and trails bring community volunteers together while assisting with the creation and maintenance of responsibly-built public trails. It is our hope that this will inspire people to care about their environment in such a way that they make conscious decisions to protect it.

Your involvement is critical to our continued success. Join the Fellowship today, come out to our trail days, and do your part to keep multi-use trails open. Enjoy!

The Fellowship of the Wheel Trail Crew was named Vermont Trail Builder of the Year in 2013 and has been voted the Best VMBA Chapter for the last few years!
