Trail Description
About this trail
cruise around in there and look for some pretty killer freeride stuff maintained by a local group of rippers (not me). but there is plenty to ride in and in the surrounding woods areas near Burlington High School as well. I ride there from my downtown burlington apt and amazed at what it has to offer so close to town. Oh and did I mention killer lake views? Check it out.

Review: Today i rode on this trail for about an hour, exploring it a bit. I took the route from the bike path in, and rode uphill towards BHS. came across plenty of unavoidable rocks, i believe 3 ladder bridges, and plenty of roots. For the most part it was dry, but had more than enough mud spots. Overall this will be a trail i'll be riding often, but was disappointed to find that there was only a couple of semi-steep hills at the BHS entrance. (also be aware that if you come in from the BHS entrance you'll come up to a fallen tree, or perhaps a cut down tree, but it blocks the path and you'll most likely have to carry your bike over it to get a down the trail)

Review: The trails at BHS are definately pretty technical, not reccomended for hard tails and no front suspension. It's definately biker friendly, or should be, since there are lots of old rotten ladder bridges all through the place. Can be accessed from the Burlington Bike Path or from the high school front parking lot. Joggers use the doubletrack loop but there's at least three or four miles of singletrack in these woods that are just bikes. The Ethan Allen Park has less singletrack, but I think it's generally multipurpose. Definately climb the hill to the tower, but don't take the entrance where the bike rack is. Go up the hill and take the next left. I haven't heard any complaints from people when I ride through, but I do also slow down to a crawl and kindly greet traffic. You can take a bridge over the beltway from this park which will lead you to the Colchester causeway trail.

Review: Very short hikers trail system, which is owned by the Episcopal Church of Burlington. They do not appreciate mountain bikers and there are numerous signs to that effect. But there is evidence of people trying to ride through the very swampy terrain. If you like mud bogging and swarms of mosquito's that could carry off a small Moose, this is the place for you.
