Take an afternoon spin and get your bike dialed right from town on a section of buttery single track loops on the East Burke Village Trails. Tonight, gather at the hotel for drinks and dinner on the deck overlooking Burke Mountain at the View Pub and rest easy. A big weekend is in store.

Rise this morning to a delicious breakfast and coffee before heading out on the day’s riding mission: The East Branch trails. Ride the Darling Hill Loop in the morning. Pedal from a shaded, lush forest high into a mountain side meadow. Discover what the term “loam” means in every sense of the word because this loop is full of it! This afternoon, grab lunch and finish up the day riding the chairlift and taking laps in the Burke Mountain Bike Park: from expertly crafted, machine-built flow trails, to winding cross country trails and top to bottom downhill tracks. Tonight, explore the quaint hamlet of East Burke on your own for dinner.

Please have your first day’s riding gear handy and separate from your other luggage to facilitate the bike fitting and ride.
