Sleepy Hollow X-Wing

Sleepy Hollow is an XC ski and mountain bike area with quite a few trails.  We rode X Wing up to the cabin, and a combination of trails back down.

X Wing is a pretty steady climb.  There are some small narrow bridges at beginning.  I was barely able to cross on most, and dropped one wheel into the ditch to get across one.  There are quite a few obstacles like roots, rocks, downed trees… (typical VT single track type terrain.)  A few required some help to get past, either because they were too narrow, threw me too far off camber, or I could not maintain traction.  The trail doesn’t get too off camber for thr most part, but there are sections where I had to get my weight well to the uphill side to avoid a roll.

The view of Camel’s Hump from the cabin is really great!
