View Connector Trails
Behind South Burlington High School on Dorset Street; Hinesburg Road (Route 116); and Hawthorne Circle.
This path was improved by the VT Youth Conservation Corps several summers ago and includes many foot bridges - five or more, some as long as 30 feet long! It is marked clearly with blue tree blazes and blue survey tape and continues along Potash Watershed (17+ acres hidden in there) all the way to Hawthorne Circle. The end of trail is marked with a blue trailhead sign post.
The trail begins behind the South Burlington High School artificial track. A point of interest nearby is a seasonal snowboard training park built by South Burlington High School team in 2007. The foot path goes along the direction of Kennedy Drive, but is set back in the woods about 500 yards or so from Kennedy Drive. It is separated from Kennedy by a spur from Potash Brook watershed.
The trail emerges at Hinesburg Road behind a small brick pumping station for the South Burlington Water Department. (There is a trailhead sign area here with parking for 4 cars; however, the trailhead sign has since been removed or stolen.)
Trail continues across Hinesburg Road with a new blue trailhead sign (intact). This entrance is directly behind the Lang Office building near the corner of Hinesburg and Kennedy Drive. Follow the Potash Brook through the woods and over the VYCC bridges to eventually get to Hawthorne Circle.
