The Burchfield concept is to have two distinct and separate trail systems, one for bikers and one for everyone else.rnThe older trail system runs about 5 miles and is almost all flat doubletrack and generally dull.rnrnThe new system is a bit over 7 miles of both a small bit of doubletrack and very tight singletrack that is a mind-numbing maze as is snakes you up and down a number of ridges and routes you over an unbelievable number of obstacles.
Additional info: Burchfield mountain bike trail is approx. ten miles and fully signed. Look for the orange signposts and don't make any turns until you come to the next one. On the north end of the park (near the main Burchfield Park entrance) there are two options for the Maze, one is rated green and the other blue. Both can be ridden by riding green first and looping back around and heading out on the blue option the second time through. A few sections of the trail are connected by sharing the two track/hiking paths. Please watch for trail runners and other trail users throughout the entire park. The complete trail is comprised of both a few segments of doubletrack, some open meadows, rolling terrain in hardwoods and tight singletrack that is a mind-numbing maze as is snakes you up and down a number of ridges and routes you over the occasional obstacles. The main entrance off Grovenburg Road has restrooms and water during the summer, at McNamara Landing (south entrance off Columbia Road) has handicap accessible water hand pump for fresh water as well as accessible vault toilets. The Riverbend entrance on Nichols road has a portable toilet and does not have water.
