On the weekend of May 14th and 15th, the Eastern States Cup Enduro circuit heads into the wild on Victory Hill in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. This hidden trail network is part of Kingdom Trails’ annual CircumBurke Challenge route. Sprawled over the southern slopes of Umpire Mountain, Victory Hill offers nearly 20 miles of previously secret and rarely ridden singletrack, as well as backcountry skiing and hiking – with plenty of room for parking, camping, hiking, and virtually no local traffic near the site.
The Victory Hill Enduro will be 14+ miles long and comprised of 4 challenging stages ranging from 1 to 2 miles in length, with different kinds of forest singletrack and terrain. With no shuttling and plenty of climbing to each starting point, the event requires excellent fitness and endurance.
