By Tony Accurso

Underdog is a fun trail situated in the Pine Hill Park trail network in Rutland, Vt. This trail flows from the intersection of Salamander/Droopy Muffin to the Carriage Trail. This trail is fast and flows well when ridden in this direction, and offers some big berms and fast corners. One interesting feature located on this trail is the Centrifuge Bridge. Built in 2010 by volunteers of the Pine Hill Partnership, it is essentially a wooden berm built on a corner. Connect this trail to Stegosaurus for a lilt bit of flow and tech, or ride it the opposite way and keep your cadence high to rip up the berms. For more information visit: pinehillpark.org/bridges/centrifuge/
