Our summer time trail system basically leaves from the village and utilizes the unique glacial features of both Darling Hill Ridge and Burke Mountain, our local ski area. With very sandy loam soil on Darling Hill Ridge we are able to provide smooth winding singletrack that takes you from panoramic field views to riverside pine forests. We have multiple trails that leave from the summit of Burke Mountain that are more gravity assisted. The trails on Burke Mountain are designed to offer you great singletrack with a bit more technical feel. We build both new trails as well as enhance the ones that exist every year. Your user fee helps us do this by providing summer help and volunteer leaders to accomplish a lot of this work.
