This ride's general location is Montgomery Center. Scenery is densely wooded. This is an entertaining single-track challenge. The most interesting part is the beginning while you are riding alongside Trout Brook. It is easy single-track and double-track riding with a few bridge crossings and short technical sections. Several optional side trails loop out to the river and back, however rumor has it that no one has negotiated any of these side trails without crashing. The second half of the loop is on dirt road VT 58, a.k.a. Hazen's Notch Road. It will take you downhill all the way back to the start. There are no major climbs and the distance is only 8 miles.

This "trail" follows what appears to be VAST and Catamount Trail corridors. If it ever was a mountain bike trail, it was decades ago. Frankly, I think that riding the route described would involve trespass on posted private property at best, and likely direct conflict with landowners. Classic example of a Trails.com route that has not been ground-truthed and should be removed. Do not attempt to ride...
