      The trails on the Carse property between Lincoln Hill and Hollow Road in Hinesburg are some of the best in VT. Big climbs and over 10 miles of epic singletrack on 1000 acres of land contiguous to the Hinesburg Town Forest. Large old growth trees, gorgeous meadows with spectacular views, and a classic ridgeline are not to be missed. FOTW has committed significant resources to this network and has created a real gem for advanced riders. Instant classics like Henry’s Highlands, Preacher, Crucible, Pinner, and Voodoo Child have been meticulously constructed and are quite popular. Most trails are characterized as a combination between technical and flowy. Trails are designed to challenge riders on climbs while allowing for higher speed descents. The most advanced trails incorporate freeride options such as rock faces, jumps, and wooden features. Many thanks to the Carse family for generous access to this private land.
