Trail Description
About this trail
The park offers about 17 miles of singletrack mountain bike trails, some of which include parts of the North South Trail. There is also a 5 mile loop of mostly doubletrack hills directly accessible on the north, in the Burlingame Management Area.The 8-mile Yellow Dot Trail/Vin Gormley Trail (also the King of Burlingame race loop) winds around Watchaug Pond. The trail is accessed by riding either north or west out of the parking lot for about a mile up the road. It is the standard loop that most local riders know, and it is a fast rolling loop with some short technical climbs and a few rock fields. While there are a good amount of roots showing, fast and smooth-rolling stretches dominate the scene. Info taken from RI Nemba site

Review: How this is rated a beginner trail is absolutely absurd... Yes I get it... there's really nice loop around the lake however there are a number of technical trails that range from intermediate to advanced ! Just got back for my first ride there and I can't wait to get back and clear all the stuff I couldn't clear on first run. Very fun!

Review: Knowing what I know now, I would recommend anyone riding the first time do the yellow loop. I was put off by the start on the dirt road, and then even on a paved road. I thought it was so easy, and I was hoping to find one of the spurs that would be more technical. I got my wish and branched off, however, it was a bit much. I dismounted my bike so many times and was not having fun. I was wishing for yellow and had no idea how long I would have to go to reconnect. While the trail you are on is marked excellently, there are not any maps ever indicating where you are on the trail system at any given time which would have been helpful. When I finally reconnected with yellow, I was pleasantly surprised by the remaining 5 or so miles - that it offered some technical features. I wish I had stuck to that in the first place. I think a beginner could even handle that with a few dismounts.

Review: Great place to ride! Great technicality for the more advanced riders on the Sammy-C trail and even some good drops and other huckable stuff if you know where to look. Has a tendency to be a bit "buggy" at times but let's face it....we are mountain bikers and enjoy choking down some flies every once in a while. There is camping here as well if you wish to make a night of it however since it's state land I am sure you will all leave your beers at home or at least use your best beer hiding via "solo cups" technique!

Review: Rode in early winter and had a great time, did the king of Burlingame loop plus some of the North-South Trail for a 12 mile total ride. You will be on the road for some parts of the trail but it is well maintained and RI Nemba hosts regualr rides at this location, check out thier web site or facebook page for more info.
