lots of tight technical stuff in here. some pretty big stuff if you look in the right places. a lot of the timber was showing its age but the best lines take you off the rock ledges anyway.

not much distance but as the confidence grows you'll start to hit bigger lines each time round. i am at my limit on a xc hardtail and just waiting for a bigger bike...

Customer Service

head in by the car park and explore. really no way you can get lost. its a tiny area.

don't waste your time unless your in the area...i'm a xc/freerider, not a downhiller, but everything in here is very basic, easy stuff. little 2 foot drops you could do on a big wheel. and if you added up all the trail length together, you would not even have a mile. this terain would be fun if there was miles of it.

Wow. Normally, I'm a pretty solid XC racer. This is the first real free-ride type trail I've ever ridden in my life. After my first run here, I'm really rethinking my decision about geting another race bike this summer. Wow. I can't really take any of the fun things in there because I'm pretty bad at this kind of stuff (got bold and took a 2' drop... didn't go well) but it was still the best thing i've done on my bike.

Customer Service

Come into Oakledge from the North Via the bike path, or the main road. They both take you to the same place. Go as far as you can on the road until you reach the end (which is a parking lot). Turn left and head to the NW corner of the lot, and there's the only enterence I could find. Then agian, I didn't really look that hard.

I used to ride an incarnation of this trail with Todd Aiken around 1995 when I lived in Burlington. Rocky, slippery, good jumps. Almost broke my neck when I found myself lunging off a hill, but miraculously recovered and landed it! Speaking of Todd Aiken, I've lost touch with the guy, and would love to get in contact with him (boston617@cox.net)!

Customer Service

It's been too long since I've ridden this trail, but I remember it was one of the best trails in the area.

Fame   Cross Country Rider [Sep 20, 2004]

I rode this trail for the first time today after reading other member's recommendations. WAY too rocky for me. It def is for seriously advanced riders with full suspension bikes or at least softtails. Has a huge winding loop around the outside of the perimeter and a bunch of cris-crossing trails in the middle. Lots of see-saws and log ramps that require wheelie climbs.

Customer Service

Most people gave a very vague and clandestine description to where this trail is--I'll straight up tell you: go to Oakledge park at the south end of the Burlington Bike Path and go all the way to the back parking lot where you wioll see a dumpster...behind the dumpster is the entrance...good luck.

RoleOver   Racer [Oct 09, 2003]

great once you get into it. The good stuff can be hard to find, even though it is in a small area. All the bridges need to be re-made, which my friends and i will probably do soon. good place to practice flat landings.

Customer Service

Just ride around. It is almost impossible to get lost, as it is a small area.

This trail system is pretty short in terms of miles, maybe a mile or a little more, but it is chock full of bridges, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6' wheelie drops, ramps, rocks, logs and other fun things to scare yourself on. The trail builders did a great job and hopefully it will remain open for riding. It's in the middle of condos and a city park. There are other fun techie lines in some of the parks in town and Burlington stays dry almost year round. No major climbing, no major descending, just twisty, turny, rooty and rocky.

Similar Products Used: For bigger vert and maximum tech, go to Stowe or the Mad River Valley.

Great technical area. Tons of interconnected trails with ladders, chutes, bridges and more. SKILLED RIDERS ONLY. and pads recommended. New stuff all the time so rip it up.

Customer Service

Best place around to really work your skills and suspension. Check out 2nd wooded area more towards lake and south.
