Colchester High School - TRAIL

Colchester High School - Trail, Colchester, Vermont

Area directly behind HS is mostly flat dirt with single trac circuits. Continue to explore to find sand pits, used by motorized vehicles (!). There are a few technical sections. Climbs are short and offer some fun & fast downhill shots. Beware of other riders since these trails can attract a number of folks on foot as well as on bikes.

These trails used to be great. 10 years ago motorized transport was outlawed but for some reason they are back and destroying the area! What used to be a great place for running, biking, hiking is now being ripped apart by a few ATV and Motorcycles-caused massive puddles and have been creating there own trails just anywhere they want.

Bummer!! Just found a car that was recently burnt-oil and gas in the watershed beside it. Selfish lazy people.

Rode the High School trails today. Very disappointing. Almost all of it is ATV trails. Not really worh anything other then a cardio workout if you live in the area.

This is some nice beginner single track, though if you go down the hill toward the swamp, you can get a bit of a challange. There are several intertwined trails, so it is possible to get mixed up. However, the trails generally go west from the high school, so the return is east.

Customer Service

Right of the track field.

This is a network of trails I used to ride several years ago when I first started riding. At that time, I would have recommended this area, as it was pretty fun. However, over the last 2 years, there has been a lot of clear-cutting in the wooded areas behind the High School. This has really taken the enjoyment out of riding these trails. I guess it could still be fun to just bomb around on for a short while. Most of the trail network is ATV trail, and thus, mostly double-trak. However, there are some side trails that are more singletrack. There is also a sandpit area that is popular with our motorized friends. I personally hate the sand...so I don't usually go there, but maybe it's more your kind of thing.
Like I said though...this area used to be much better than it is now. Too bad, really.

Similar Products Used: Hmm...well, you could always make a 20 minute drive over to Williston, and stop by the Catamount Family Center. I used to ride there too...nice place. Something for most every ability. Slight fee to ride...used to be $6 for the day. Don't know what it is now.
