Mud Pond Country Park was built in the fall of 2002 by the Fellowship Of The Wheel for the town of Williston. This is a 3 mile lollipop-shaped loop, with an additional 1.5 mile extension loop on the southern side that was added during the 2003 season. The trails are beginner to advanced/intermediate and are great for the rider who has some basic skills under their belt and wants something a bit more challenging.

The lower half of the Mud Pond loop is a great place for beginning mountain bikers to get accustomed to single-track. The upper half of the loop is intermediate with some more challenging sections. The top (highest point) of the Mud Pond East Loop also marks the beginning of the Lake Iroquois Connector which is approximately 6 miles of fun, challenging single-track which ends at the Lake Iroquois parking lot.

This area connects to the Five Tree Hill and Mud Pond Conservation Area.

Cool trail, but consider avoiding on a windy day. Some of the trees are pretty feeble and appear close to falling down. They were making lots of cracking and creaking sounds.

Clean and broad trails, which switch back and forth often. I imagine this is lovely for bikers, but a little funny for those on foot. Very well maintained and a quick jaunt out of Burlington. I'll definitely be back!
These awesome businesses support our goal of connecting people to outdoor adventures!
