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!
