Review: What a great trail network! First off, this is not just a set of trails... it's a true MTB'ing experience. As noted in the previous review the small town of East Burke caters to mountain bikers and there is a great sense of MTB community, not unlike Pisgah, only more quaint. It's worth noting that there is a Welcome Center ($15/day pass required to ride). You basically can hit up the trails right from the town center. There is something for all skills levels. The trails are in great condition and they drain exceptionally well. Sidewinder is a must and probably the real signature trail with its roller coaster style design. Once you climb back hit up Bear Back or take Sidewinder back down again. Other must ride trails are the three "T" trails that all make the same descent from east to west (so you've got to climb back afterwards): Troll Stroll, Tody's Tour and Tap 'n Die (I would rate them in that order). The view from Heaven's Bench is worth the climb followed by a blast down Ridge through Rim. If you go off the main trail areas Coronary Bypass is worth the trip to the northwest trail area on Darling Mtn. And while it doesn't get a lot of traffic, Moose Alley (ridden east to west) will add a bit more of a technical challenge at speed. IMO, all rides should finish on Kitchel which offers some well designed berms and some opportunity for air. Overall the network is really all about flow as there are very few areas with any rock (Moose Alley had the most of the trails I hit). But there are lots of roots, top notch berms, tight turns, good change in elevation and the ability to carry a lot of speed. Definitely worth the trip!

Review: Just spent 4 days running the trails with a friend. Some of the best riding we've ever done. The town of East Burke has really embraced this and it all has a great vibe. 100 miles of trails!!!! We got to most of it and loved the variety. Personal favourites were Sky Dive, Bear Back, Piggy Back and Sidewinder. Lots of good flow on descents and reasonable climbs back to the ridge top. Loved this place.

Review: The most fun flow syle trais in the North East. Well mapped, well drained, No rocks, minimal roots, just plenty of fast fun flow trails. With a full time Trail building staff and budget these trails will continue to outperform.

Review: Awesome trail system with some nice diversity. The town is really neat as well. I rode about 20 miles and my favorite trail was Troll Stroll which has some really nice berms and amazing flow. If you're staying multiple days I'd recommend The Village Inn as it has cool rooms, a creek in the back, a dedicated room for storing your bike, and the people are very nice. There's also a cafe across the street and an ice cream shop just the road toward the trails, which you can bike to from the Inn. The only downside here is you have to pay $15 a day, but that's probably because it's all private land. Still definitely worth it.

Review: I would have to say this place is the best riding in the northeast if not nation wide. Family friendly and excellent maintenance. Every time you ride it's better then the first time.
