1Chain, you are not missing anything. This is part of the Burlington Recreation Path. Great for family rides, jogging or other leisurely activities, but it is not a mountain bike trail. It is a rail trail/rec path.
However, at Airport Park in Colchester, where many park to access the causeway section of the trail, there is a small section of single track trails in the woods on the west side of the park. They are perfect for kids learning to ride singletrack.
