Fueled by the success and experience and a ton of help from our neighbors at Kingdom Trails, the gravity-assisted Burke Bike Park has some of the most interesting single-track trails in the Northeast.
With thirteen downhill and seven cross-country trails, the park (consisting of expert jump, excavated and flow trails) has something for everyone. We're adding to new single-track trails from the CCC Road providing for different descend options from the summit into the bike park. Additionally, FreeRide got a complete overhaul last Fall and will be open. Keep in mind this trail is every bit of the triple diamond it boasts so be sure to use caution your first time down. Our other serious routes from the top are Rude Awakening and Upper J-Bar.
Location: Burke Bike Park, Sherburne Lodge Rd., East Burke
