The winter trails center is located at The Bethel Resort (next to the Millbrook Tavern). We have a full rental fleet for skiing, snowshoeing and fat tire biking. We are happy to assist you with what equipment is best for your adventure. We also offer lessons for beginner and intermediate skiers–choose a group, private lesson, or join one of our clinics.

In 2016, Inland Woods + Trails assumed operations of the winter trails center at The Bethel Resort. This network now includes year-round recreation with a network of cross-country ski, snowshoe, and fat biking trails in the winter and mountain biking trails in the summer. This would not have been possible without the significant investment and volunteer contributions from our community. We are grateful to landowners that partner with us including private landowners and The Conservation Fund.

The connection: The Bethel Village Trails is at the core of IWT’s goal of community connectivity. The network provides recreation on the outskirts of Bethel Village, close to area businesses and not far from our other trail networks.
