Today's trail in our series - Mountain Biking In Vermont: A World-Renowned Destination For Riders - is the beloved Carse Hills Trail!
Vermont offers premier mountain biking terrain, and if you're looking for some of the best trails in Vermont, Carse Hills is one of the perfect places to ride!
The tracks on the Carse property (located in between Hollow Road and Lincoln Hill in Hinesburg, Vermont) consistently rank as among rider's top favorites.
There are big, challenging climbs, well over 10 miles of incredible single track on 1,000 acres of land (contiguous to the Hinesburg Town Forest), and extremely well-celebrated networks such as Henry's Highlands, Preacher, Crucible, Pinner, and Voodoo Child.
These networks have been masterfully constructed and are very popular; they are the product of Fellowship Of The Wheel's dedicated investment to this area over the last five reasons, and the result is an unparalleled gem for advanced riders.
You can also expect to see rare old growth trees, pristine meadows with breathtaking views, and a phenomenal ridge line.
Henry's Highlands, Preacher, Crucible, Pinner, and Voodoo Child - all on Carse Hills, Vermont - are described by Fellowship Of The Wheel as "technical and flowy." These carefully crafted trails are intended to challenge riders on climbs, while facilitating higher speeds during descents.
The most advanced of these trails offer "free ride" options, such as jumps, wooden features, and rock faces.
We are all in a debt of gratitude to Henry Ralph Carse for providing such generous access to his land!
