Used this trail to get to Hamilton Falls. Great views. Dam release after heavy rain made it very special.

Ok trail and pretty clean. No real challenge though. Definitely a beginner trail. Take the trail to the Hamilton Falls trail head and it’s an awesome hike. Cool views from Dam.

This is a good trail with some easy riding for beginners and some great technical riding for those who like a challenge. The only drawback is that this trail starts in South Londonderry, VT. Which is not close to Hancock, VT as this website lists it. Check with the guys at Norse House (one of the local bike shops) for maps and a great heads up of trail conditions.
