Mountain biking in East Burke is synonymous with the Kingdom Trails trail system, home to “110 miles of cross country trails for all levels of ability,” according to Executive Director Tim Tierney. Generally the Kingdom Trails offer flowy singletrack with perfectly-sculpted berms and rollers, but you can find some more challenging sections as well. The greater East Burke areas is also home to the Burke Mountain downhill park, although whether or not the Burke DH park is still open depends on which day you check the news.
Tim expounds on the facilities available at the Kingdom Trails network itself:
“We have many group lodging facilities that have catered to the MTB crowd, including several restored post and beam barns. We have trailhead showers and bike shops. We also have an on-the-trail backcountry food cafe on the weekends. There is a tiki bar with 27 taps and a farm-to-table food truck, as well as several other quality restaurants at [the] central trailhead. Also a bike shop/craft beer cafe at another midway location.”
