Sleepy Hollow Inn - Trail, Huntington, Vermont

DESCRIPTION

"Ride it if you can!" This is a brand new Ski/Bike touring center, so there is a small trail use fee. Just came back from riding there today and can't wait to come back for more. The single tracks are tight and technical. There are many trails there, but get on the Butternut Cabin trail.

Much improvment with this network from the last review. I was fortunate enogh to meet and speek with the 2 FOTW dudes responsible for bringing these trails back to life. Classic east coast riding. Rocks, roots, tight, twisty, climbs. I'm from Western, PA and the riding is similar. I stayed at the lodge and had a blast.

Customer Service

Take one of the wide grassy trails up to the Butternut Cabin. Gawk at the view of Camels Hump and then rip.....Skywalker, Yoda, light Sabre, Millenium Falcom, Hans Solo.....all are good. Theres even a connector trail off of Yoda to get you into the Hinesburg Town Forest network of trails. Both systems combined would make for a true Epic.

I have been riding Sleepy Hollow a couple of times a week for three years. This place keeps getting better and better as Eli, the trail architect, is always busy and has a knack for creating rythmic technical trails that make your sould shine for days afterwards. The more you ride here, the more you love it as it takes a dozen rides or more to really get around to all of the single track. This year they offered a season's pass; $50.00 ride all you want. It is sooooo worth it. I am sure that many people won't agree with me but I believe it is as good as "The Kingdom."

Customer Service

Yoda, Melenium Falcon, Hans Solo, and Light Saber are the most technical

This is the best mountain biking around Champlain Valley. Probably the best in northern VT. Sleepy Hollow has kick ass singletrack and nice easy, wide nordic ski trails that encompass the whole ski & bike center. For a very nominal fee of around $5 you can get a whole days worth of fun and fast riding. Plus the family who owns and runs the place are phenominal. They do so much hard work making Sleepy the place to be. It seems like every few weeks a new trail has been built or is in the process of being built. Overall Sleepy Hollow Ski and Bike Center is a great place to ride whether you are a seasoned rider or a green beginner.

Customer Service

Basically any of the singletrack. But be sure to bring one of their maps along with you for the ride. There are many intersections/new trails throughout their land. Anything that has a Star Wars name is sure to be an awesome trail.

Ziggity Zach and this new singletrack trail by Ridge Road are also very fun. If you want to do a long loop go on Hinesburg Hill Loop. It's a nordic ski trail and I believe that its around 10 or so mil

climbing is kind of lame--it's mostly nordic trails, but when you get to the singletrack at the top of the climbs, it's excellent

Doesn't matter as long as you end up going down the singletrack

Not much single track. Whats there takes about 45 minutes to ride all the single track. Other than that it's like riding the burlington bike path except on grass.

follow the little map

All in all some incredible riding. Probably the best I've been on in my former home state of VT and definitely superior to here in southwest CT. From the main lodge you can start off on either x-country ski trails or single track - whichever you prefer. However, either way be ready for some hills. Most trails start off going uphill and there are some great long climbs - which can only mean great long descents. The cross country ski trails cover the entire 900 or so acres and are fantastic riding. The prize, however, is the single track. There are a good mix of technical and not-so-technical trails and every time I go back it seems like another couple kilometers have been added. Fantastic riding and a great atmosphere in the lodge to kick back in after a couple of hours on the trails.

The new owners have done an incredible job getting this place up and running again after 10 years of abandonment!

Customer Service

Just go out and ride, but bring the map along - and make sure you check out the views (and descent) from Butternut Cabin!

The old 5 tree hill area in williston was decent but has now been closed to bikers (the trails are definitely showing this as they are becoming quite dismaintained)

Although this area was orginally designed for the cross country skier, the current owners - Dave and Sandy Enman, along with their son, Eli have transformed it into a summer mountain biking playground. They've been extremely busy adding new singletrack trails all around their 800+ acre mountain. My friend Tom and I recently spent a 3 day weekend at Sleepy Hollow Inn, riding some of the best singletrack we've ever experienced. Although there's plenty of great riding right on site, Sleepy Hollow is close to several other excellent singletrack sites. Eli prepared some maps to help us get around, and even volunteered to lead us on a ride (when we could keep up) through even more killer singletrack.

Sleepy Hollow offers something for beginners and experts alike. We saw familys, couples, racers, and even volunteer trail builders while we were there. The Enman's were very hospitable, and made us feel welcome at all times. The Inn is beatiful and provides an welcome setting to retire to when you've finished a day of riding, hiking, etc.

If you live in Vermont, and ride this stuff all the time, it's probably still worth the few bucks to try out the trails here. If you live in the flatter parts of New England or New York like me, spend a few days using Sleepy Hollow Inn as a base camp and ride 'till you can ride no more. You'll hate to leave...

Customer Service

Take Bishop trail to Butternut Cabin and check out the view. From there, ride up Icabod's Revenge and take a right on the single track trail called Balance Beam. Stay right and just follow singletrack to the bottom. There are several singletrack options along the way down. All of them are a blast.

I ride all over northern VT and typically do not pay to ride. I made an exception, wanting to try out something new, and support local folks like myself. Boy was I surprised at the quality of this place. THe singletracl trails are extremely well built, and sport a little of just about everything. Some rocks, some steeps, lots of tight turns...really nice. I highly recommend Millenium Falcon to Hans Solo. Superior. VT does have better 'pay' riding, but only at Kingdom Trails, and that place is of course impossible to beat. What they have built at Sleepy Hollow is really great, so go, pay a few $, support our local neighbors, and have FUN.

Take every singletrack trail named after Star Wars
