“A challenging 10-mile loop with a mix of gravel road, singletrack and machine built trail.”— Josh Matta
Follow this road up and it quickly turns to singletrack and veers into the woods on your left. You are now on Pipeline. Pipeline meanders up the hillside about 1 mile before coming to an intersection. At this intersection, bear right to follow this route. Left takes you to Trapp Family Trails, which are a pay to ride area.
Upon going right, you'll quickly end up riding through some fields and through a disc golf course. When the singletrack finally meets the paved road, make a sharp left up the hill, followed by a right onto Gravel Road. It's the first right you can make.
While riding up the gravel road, keep your eyes open to the right for a trail that is doubletrack with a singletrack worn into it, it's is normally mowed. Follow this trail up the hill. It passes the Luce Hill Cemetery, the oldest Cemetery in Stowe.
As you come out to another gravel road, you'll be right at a fork in the road. Take the right fork and start up Haul Road and enjoy the views of Stowe to your right.
Coming up the long Haul Road, keep your eyes to the right for a grassy steep doubletrack. Head up this doubletrack and it will quickly turn to a machine built singletrack. After a short, stout little climb, you'll end up on the Adam's Camp Loop and Hardy's Haul. Remember where this trail is because it's your way home.
From here most people will ride up Hardy's Haul to Kimmer's Trail but the other way will work as well. Follow the Adam's Camp Loop for these trails. Once you have ridden the whole loop, go back down Haul Road Bypass and retrace your steps back to the car.
