Overview

A loop through sunny Hollow in Colchester, Vermont. I came in and out from East Loop / Brooke Crossing and looped a few times through North Plateau and Outer Limits, over Triborough Bridges to Teardrop and back out. To finish I took a fast trip around Blueberry loop.

Need to Know

Stay off the US Government property (Camp Johnson) on the East Loop side and along the access trail!!

Description

A nice way to spend an hour (more or less). The ride is a nice mix of intermediate and advance intermediate trails with sandy well drained soil, smooth berms, and great bridges especially on Triborough Bridges.

As shown the ride has you starting out on the easy East Loop and then diving down into the hollow on smooth climbing turns of Brooke Crossing. You'll ride up Moose Hill, which can be challenging, and up on to the North Plateau. You can loop around the plateau several times if you like and then ride Western Slope to the swoopy Outer Limits and loop around that a few times.

After Outer Limits, continue down on Western Slope to Triborough Bridges and enjoy the berms and bridges on the way to Teardrop. You'll end up back on Triborough Bridges riding back to Western Slope, Brooke Crossing, and East Loop. To finish the ride cross the bridge you entered on and stay right to ride Blueberry Loop as fast as you can :). It is really quite a fun green loop when ridden fast!

This place is the "Go To" trail system for urban Burlington area. It drains really well and is easy to get to. Thanks Fellowship of the Wheel and the Town of Colchester.

Blueberry Loop is to the left. East Loop to the right. Both directions access the more advance trails beyond.

Great for all skill levels. There’s something for everyone here. Trails are pretty short yet exciting. 4mi

Not a fan of these trails. The sandy terrain mixed with the trail designs make for tough riding with little payoff. Nice for running, though.
