On friday, mother nature finally stopped crying about the loss off all the beautiful snow we had here in Stowe for the winter of 10-11. Finally giving the trails a chance to dry out enough so that riding on them would not destroy them for good. Being that this is my first off season being spent in Stowe, I have been exploring every local trail system that I have had time to explore. Friday's destination was a very scenic and secluded spot, in Hungington, Vermont called Sleepy Hollow. Its about 40 minutes west of Stowe, Vt.
We basically did the Jedi Force Loop shown here. Part of this trail were really fun.
Erik on a rooty, with rock slabs decent that was old school steep but alot of fun.
me on the same trail on a steep little roll down
but with it being early season, some trails were just a tad soft and steep for me on my trusty Single Speed. On the loop there was everything from really well designed flowly almost buff singletrack, to technical rock roll down and drops. The cherry on top was the final decent down Getting Better which is more open, and flowly than any other trail we had a privilege of riding. Overall this is a really sweet little place to ride and can be combined with Hinesburg Town Forest, and Carse Hills to form some epicly large XC Mountain biking loops. Think 50 plus miles! The Fellowship of the wheels website has more info on these trails and all off the Greater Burlington Area trail system.
