Mountain Biking Rock Point

****   Add a review
#48 of 125 mountain bike trails in Vermont
#4,879 in the world

This is the most technical section of biking in Burlington. Not for beginners on hard tails. The trail traverses along large cliffs, with many
short, but tricky technical climbs and descents. Many great spots to swim and stop for a break. Riding is mostly on rugged bedrock and roots
with some hardpack in between. Currently the trail is a one way, with an
exit/ entrance onto north beach

I have been building/ working on this trail a lot recently, so look for new
trails with ladder bridges, berms and fun lines etc

Getting there
This group of trails lies to the west of the Burlington bike path on rock point
pennisula, which is just north of North beach. There are a few ways to access these
trails. If you are driving it would be easiest to park at the high school and ride the BHS trails en route, which exit right onto the bike path a little north of the rock point entrance.

There are a couple discreet and easy to miss trails that branch off from the bike path between the train bridge and the BHS trail exit. Another way to reach the trails is by going down rock point rd, (staying to the north)
and entering the trail near the cove.

Loop/connector trail coming soon!

    I'm not the most experienced mountain biker, but I had a blast on this trail. It felt very narrow at times, with a lot of technical climbs, roots, rocks and obstacles. Some super steep areas and then some smoother areas. I started from the top of the trail near all the church/farm stuff, where it cuts across a field to the woods. I don't know how your supposed to get there, but I took one of the off shoots from the bike path. Good stuff!
