It wouldn’t be very North of us to brag about ourselves. But we think talking up our partners is fine. And technically it’s not bragging, it’s quoting. Bike magazine has, once again, named Kingdom Trails the
"BEST MOUNTAIN BIKING TRAIL NETWORK IN NORTH AMERICA".
A “secret” that over 50,000 bikers enjoy every summer on 100+ miles of thoughtfully planned and carefully maintained multi-use recreational trails with two distinct sections.
Burke Bike Park (Open June 8, 2013–Oct. 20, 2013)
More challenging terrain can be found at Burke Mountain, including 3 downhill trails from the summit.* Lower on the mountain, you’ll find more of the singletrack trails that made KT so renowned. In 2010, we opened the Burke Bike Park, a gravity downhill trail system and park accessed by the Sherburne Express High Speed Quad. From the top of the lift, riders can access singletrack and slopestyle trails rated from intermediate to advanced. The park boasts three excavated trails designed by Knight Ide of IdeRide with the help of Pro-rider Kyle Ebbett, Dylan Eustace, Luke Thompson (bridge), Leif Trott, Kingdom Trails Manager CJ Scott and the Kingdom Trails Crew.

The Kingdom Trails Network (Open May 1, 2013–Oct 2013)
This picturesque hill holds the majority of the singletrack trails in the network. Ranging from easy country roads to challenging, fast singletrack, every ability level will find a rewarding challenge and fantastic scenery on Darling Hill. With views of the surrounding countryside and the Willoughby Gap, the scenery almost rivals the incredible trails–almost.
