The Falls at Five Tree Hill

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

All the trails here are just technical insane and just plane hold awesome. I am twelve years old and race for Earl's Cyclery and Fitness. Some of the trails here are just insane just 4 foot drop offs at some places and it is just about all technical hard stuff. Some of the stuff is impossible. My bike team has made an insane crazy easily as hard as any downhill course on the Norba or World Cup Curcuit except it isn't long enoough. If anyone likes British Columbia they will love this place. Some of the stuff is really impossible to make it up. Well that is about all this is a place no one really nows about or not many people and you would not beable to find it through anyold person. But if you live around Williston Vt. and you love technical ridin this is a place you have to go to.

Summary:
To everyone who is interested in riding the trails at 5 Tree Hill. It is important that until trail easements are created and some issues resolved with landowners (upon whose land some of the trails exist)you refrain from using the trails at 5 Tree Hill. The Williston Conservation Commission is currently working on these concerns and warns that if these issues are not adressed properly the land may be posted permanently and thus totally off limits. We appreciate your respecting this delicate state of affairs and hope to have good news for the lovers of these trails before long.

Summary:
My 12 year old son Jade posted the initial report of Five Tree Hill so I felt it necessary to give a more cogent description of the area.
First of all, Five Tree Hill is an important natural area and some of the landowners are somewhat squeamish of mtn. bikers so please be respectful and appreciative in using the area.
If you explore the full extent of Five Tree Hill you will find that it constitutes some of the finest riding in VT. The trails were originally created around a snowmobile trail but now consist primarily of an elaborate network of singletrack. Fast rolling trails, as well as extremely technical sections. Chutes, ledges, ridges, switchbacks, tough climbs, technical descents. You will find a ride through a dead forest, an Indian burial mound, incredible walls built by settlers 150 or more years ago, a beautiful overlook point at the top of Five Tree Hill from which you can see acrossLake Champlain to the Adirondacks. All in all, incredibly beautiful natural terrain and trails that attempt to capitalize on the beauty of the area.(The Falls, which is listed in the heading, is just one section of gnarly downhill that my son Jade is particularly fond of.)
The spider web of trails that you will find at Five Tree Hill make up many miles and hours of challenging and immensely enjoyable riding. Please be considerate of other trail users (hikers, runners, horseback riders, etc.) as well as the land owners on the perimeters.
If you would like a tour of the area, or have any questions, feel free to contact me: Hans Jenny at (802) 434-4087 or e-mail me at

Recommended Route:
Off Old Creamery Rd. in Williston, turn onto Sunset Hill Rd. and park immediately on the left side of the road. Ride up Sunset Hill Rd. and turn onto Five Tree Lane. About 1/4 mile in you will see the traihead on the left directly after a small pond.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Catamount Family Outdoor Center in Williston. One of the foremost centers in the Northeast for learning, enjoying, training, racing, and refining your mountain biking skills on great trails and in the company of great people.

Hey, Big deal! Why review it if you're not going to give scoops on how to find it? At least give a few interesting hints for the locals!

Reviewed by: tc , from points east

Summary:
can't agree w/ the above reviews, yes, there are some somewhat technically challenging spots, mostly short steep uphill sections, but everything can be cleaned. the downhills are not challenging, except for one spot where i definitely wanted to have my handlebars chopped down like an xc-type rider (or a pansy, for that matter). the neighbors and landowners around the area aren't particularly biker-friendly, but that's probably to be expected in chittenden county, bastion of moneyed scum.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
none. build some good ones yourself, handtools aren't that expensive and easy to use.
