    Carse Hills is my backyard, I have a sweet routine for raging in this awesome network of killer trails: usually, my wife will shuttle me from home up Lincoln hill road(horrible elevator climb) to Henry's. ride up to Underground railroad or Repent and seek the Preacher to gas down the side of the mountain on some buff precision singletrack, complete with whoops, berms, and mad lines. I like to ride Crucible last, exit onto Hollow road, where it's 5 miles home on the pavement. Now that's a ride!!

    Sweet trails, some with gnarly features.

    From what I rode at carse (mostly just Henry's highlands due to some time constraint) this place is sweet. It seems like you're always either going up or down, which I enjoyed a lot. Will be back next time I'm in Burlington.

    The previous review neglected to mention Henry's Highlands trail. In one direction its a fabulous climb, full of switchbacks that help make the grade very reasonable. In the other direction its an incredible flowing downhill filled with high-speed berms.

    Lots of techy climbing on the Front Door trail, Pinner/Slight Return are good intermediate trails. Repent and The Preacher are advanced. The Preacher includes lots of advanced freeride opportunities, with intermediate bailout options. Some of the best work that the Fellowship has done to date!
