Two miles of trails located right in Hinesburg's Village Center. Pleasant and rolling trails suitable for a variety of uses, including mountain bikes. Some parts of the Perimeter Trail and some of the interior sugaring trails are suitable for horses. The Russell Family Trails are part of the the Hinesburg Area Recreational Trails system. 

Other Information

Please do not park in the Lantman's parking lot, as there are an insufficient number of parking spaces for Lantman's customers. Also, the Russell family has generously conserved these trails for public use - please respect the farming operation by closing the pasture gates behind you, as farm animals may be grazing in the fields.

Nice family walking spot. Would recommend bearing right on the perimeter trail at the start so you can end with the overlook.
