Mountain Biking Saxon Hill

****   Add a review
#5 of 138 mountain bike trails in Vermont
#463 in the world

Usually up the hill by the water tower, continuing on the logging trail. Then up to the old (radio tower?) footings at the top of the hill. Cruise down the far side & head up some more of the double track. Hang a right back onto the single track and either get lost swinging left (eventually working my way out) or hanging a right and getting less lost.

Q: Is this trail suitable for beginners?
A: Not bad. Some climbing but generally nothing too bad. The nearby Catamount Outdoor Center is ideal for beginners.
