Lots of trees down. Not really rideable right now. FOTW, you’ll need some chainsaws!

While Trailforks notes this trail as blue, the trail signs note it as black. Considering the climbing and the extent of rock and roots, we vote for black.

Pretty sweet climb with just enough steep and tech to make it borderline blue. The fun really starts over the backside of the peak, with makes this climb all the more rewarding. There are some alt lines for descending this trail as well.

Thanks to the trail crew for putting in some small but fun (optional) features. One thing, in general that VT lacks, compared to many other places I’ve ridden, is features.

I would rate this as probably the hardest climb in Vermont. A few very technical moves mixed in with an absolutely unrelenting grade make this a true sufferfest.
