Description

Named for the Scotch Highland cattle raised in Hinesburg by the late Henry H Carse, this trail is used to access the Carse Hills trail system from the north, and is a great ride in either direction.

From the small pullout on Lincoln Hill Road, the trail heads south across a meadow, then turns left and descends slightly before entering the woods. Gaining 400 feet in a mile and a half, the trail utilizes frequent switchbacks to maintain a good grade for climbing. Many smaller rock / root obstacles keep it interesting, as well as a few small bridges.

After passing the high point, the trail descends slightly and meets the Preacher trail 1.7 miles from where you started. A connector trail goes left here, Preacher drops down to the right.
