Summary:
Trails are as DH or AM or XC as you want. AS technical or flowy or aerobically challenging as you would like. Rutland volunteers have spent tens of thousands of hours maintaining these trails.

Recommended Route:
Svelte Tiger

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All trails are extremely buffed, polished, and flowy!

Summary:
I was in Killington, VT for the week of thanksgiving and it had rained the week before so the mountain was not open for snowboarding so i basically had nothing to do all week except go to the brewery and sit in a 20 bedroom house when my uncle was walking down the road and found a trail map for this place on the side of the road along with a ton of other garbage. I took a ride over to this place to check it out not knowing how fun it was going to be. The people that put the time into building up these trails really know how to make an extremely fun place to ride in a small area. I dont remember the trail names that i took but every time you think it cant get any better there will be a nice table top coming up fast or a sweet cliff drop. I also Extremely recommend ending your ride with the trail called Half Pipe because it is the most fun trail to end an already great ride!

Recommended Route:
It is only about a 15 minute drive from Killingtons Access road, and park next to the sports center.

Summary:
Lots of different loops and connecting trails, fun single track, fun to explore. Easy to moderate level of difficulty for me, nothing really technical, but fun to blast around on these trails once and a while instead of my usual rides.

Rider diversity is amusing... In one afternoon I saw a guy hauling a** through the woods on a nice Canfield, and a joker in cutoff jean shorts riding a fully ridged bike from the late 80's.

Recommended Route:
Just explore.

I haven't found any trails that I didn't like. I have talked to the dude that is in charge of the building the trails in the park (can't remember his name sorry but he has long hair and a really old school helmet) he recommended Halfpipe which at the time was just opened and needed to be ridden.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Killington has a bunch of good trails.

If you don't want to pay for a lift ticked you can pedal up, you're still supposed to pay a cheaper fee but I have never had a problem just parking and riding.

Why was the guy on the late 80's rigid a joker? As the owner of a Yeti 575 and a 1980's Fat Chance I'd like to know if I'm a joker when I ride my Fat? Just curious.

Do you wear cutoff jean shorts? If so then yes and I might have a laugh at you. I don't judge people on their bikes, but somewhat on their apparel. The guy looked goofy riding around in cutoff jean shorts, not to mention he was in the wrong gear. Sorry if I sounded like a snob.

No you don't sound like a snob. Just a novice rider who needs to outgrow some childish ideas.
jamisVermont (07/14/2009)
Haha. Ok chief. I see a guy riding in jean shorts and I think they're a joker, and its worth making a note of the rider diversity. I give the guy credit for getting out and riding, even if he doesn't want to invest in bike shorts.

Childish ideas or not, choosing that part of my review to pick a fight about is pretty childish on your part. Troll.

Summary:
This is a newly rebuilt trail system. And it's been given a new name in Pine Hill Park. These trails rock. A local guy has set out and with the help of many volunteers put together some of the sweetest switchback, berm covered, fast single track that you will ever come accross. There are a few great loops that you can put together. The trails are a bit technical but not so much that you can't ride them without suspension or on a single speed. have fun

Summary:
Too many good trails to count. Endless riding by changing up routes.

Recommended Route:
Stay on the outer most trails up to Rocky Pond, then complete the circle back down to the bottom. Sorry, can't remember trail names.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Half Pipe, the new route through the power lines.

Half pipe was one of the best trails out of all of the trails!
