Radar Time
      The Hinesburg Town Forest boasts 18 miles of singletrack spread through 850 acres. The history of the land includes early 20th-century farming and you can occasionally see old rock walls, foundations, wells, apple trees, and other signs of a bygone era. Trails are primarily “old-school rake-and-ride” and are therefore quite challenging. There are very limited options for beginner and intermediate riders. Set in the middle of three contiguous networks, the Hinesburg Town Forest is an excellent jumping off point for some of the longest, most challenging rides in VT. Head up and over to the incredible Carse Hills trails to the south or climb up to the Butternut Cabin at Sleepy Hollow to the north. The Hinesburg Town Forest is also very popular for hiking, snowshoeing, and hunting, with occasional permitted use of ATV’s and equestrians on the town-maintained Eagle Trail. The Hinesburg Town Forest trails are on public land managed by the Hinesburg Town Forest Committee—thanks to the Town of Hinesburg for their generous trail use access.

      The Hinesburg Town Forest will be closed to all non-hunting users during the following periods in 2019:
      Oct. 2nd – Oct. 11th
      Oct. 23rd – Nov. 1st
      Nov. 16th – Nov. 22nd
      Dec. 7th – Dec. 15th

      Thank you all for your cooperation.
