Summary:
My first visit to Pine Hill Park was not a disappointment. I'd been reading about how good it was online and finally made the 2 and 1/2 hour trip from New York to Vermont. The trails were smooth and flowing. A ton of berms to rip around on and lots of different options for all skill levels. It was a pleasure to get to actually ride my bike on these trails compared to the rocks and roots that dominate the upstate NY mountain bike scene. I rode about 11 miles and that was with two climbs from the parking lot. All in all, a great place to ride...

Recommended Route:
any and all trails

Summary:
As a rider and trail builder I was impressed with these trails. They're new school- fast and flowy. Almost anyone can ride them but anyone can enjoy them. Smooth by New England standards. There are lots of cool twisty, wavy boardwalks and bridges (even a suspension bridge). I rode a full rigid singlespeed 29er and it worked great. Trails are well maintained by city employees. We saw a guy with a Muck Truck (motorized wheelbarrow) on the trails when we were there. Overall its a cool place that you should visit if you're in the area.

Summary:
This was an unexpected surprise! I fell into riding here and now all I can do is think about when I will be in VT next to ride it! It is small...but size isn't everything. It is like a mini Kingdom trails!!! Well..a baby Kingdom Trails...but it's FREE, in Rutland and so easy to get to. You can cover all the trails easy in a day...but it will challenge you and make you smile!

Recommended Route:
See the nice guys in the bike shop. Let them know your ability level and they can map a ride for you with the right direction in mind.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Killington, the Catamount, Mount Snow's cross country trails.

Summary:
A great trail system that ranges from awesome flowy singletrack to low/mid level tech. Tons of nice, banked switchbacks and short up/down hills. I'm a beginner/intermediate rider, so this review is a bit skewed towards my riding skill. A more experienced rider might not find the same trails I loved quite as exciting. The aerobic difficulty level depends on how hard you're pedaling!

Recommended Route:
Make sure you come down Svelte Tiger! Stay off of Giorgetti- it's walking only. I didn't see the sign the first time I rode there :-P
Stegosaurus is more technical.
Make sure you hit Overlook Trail (that's where the suspension bridge is).
A good ride is Escalator, up Svelte Tiger to Droopy Muffin, to Santa's Little Helper, then to Stegosaurus via a trail that I'm blanking on the name of now, to the overlook, down Overlook Trail, to Salamander, to Underdog, then back down Underdog to Upper Ledges which will take you to Tim's Vista, down Birches, across the Pond Road (I'm pretty sure that's the road) to Svelte Tiger, down Svelte Tiger, up Furlough, down Evergreen Fall (another can't miss, short, but very steep and pretty darn rocky!) then back down Escalator if you're done, or keep going! I haven't yet tried it, but I've heard that Halfpipe is pretty awesome as well.

Summary:
Was up in Ludlowe for the long weekend and decided to take a ride at Pine Hill up in Rutland. The trails there are not that technical but it does have its moments. It has some great uphills and downhills which is mostly the way you feel..either you goin up or down. They were setting up for a 12 hour endurance race there and before the race I rode the marked out trail that was set up..fantastic course! Mostly all single track with berm turns, some unique bridge work..(there actually was a wooden suspension bridge!) Not a real big place but plenty of trails and nice vistas and pond views it really has been very well done and all riders of all levels would enjoy it if your into a good workout. I would say it is mostly and best suited for XC bikes. Don't need six inch suspension here but I didn't hit all the trails. You can really get cranking on some of the windy downhill single track. Well designed, well maintained and should be on everyone's list if your in the area. Only got to ride it once but wish I had a few more days to do it a few more times. Will be there again for sure....So next time your up at Killington Downhilling and want to try something different check it out its not far.

Recommended Route:
Ride them all and then change direction.. stegasaurus is pretty cool but really they all were pretty good. Three hours riding there is a good workout and you would have ridden most all the trails.. then reverse course to get a whole new feel....
