Summary:
Can't get much better than the Kingdom Trails! Miles and miles of riding, mapped out nicely and enough variety to keep everyone happy. Make sure you bring plenty of water and sources of energy because you're not going to want to get off of these trails! The town itself is really cool with good eats and great folks. There is a state forest about 20 min from the trails (Brighton State Park) that is really nice to camp at, so make a few days of it.

Recommended Route:
Have to hit Sidewinder...Go down Tap and Die...Kitchel is a great way to end...and everything else!

Summary:
Had heard many people talk about Kingdom Trails and finally got up to try them this past June and was not disappointed! Well maintained trails with signage and a fantastic mix of terrain. By the end of the trip we had already started planning a fall trip which we completed last weekend with all of our girlfriends. We were able to find a great beginner loop for them with fantastic views.

Recommended Route:
The KTA office will be happy to plan out a route that fits your needs but some can't-miss trails are: Sidewinder, Kitchel, Old Webs, Webs, Eager Beaver,Tap n' Die, Troll Stroll, Poundcake, Ridge, Farmjunk, and Moose Alley.
Both times we were unable to hit the Burke Summit Trails due to rain, but I hear they are great and they're on our to-do list for next year.

Summary:
Holy trail network, batman, Kingdom Trails is the real deal. My buddy finally got me up there to ride and it exceeded what I thought was his highly questionable raving.

So much has been said about this network, I won't waste a lot of time on details. Suffice to say there's terrain for everyone, including the kids. I'm a roadie who is long on enthusiasm and short on technical skill (this can be a lethal combination), but I tried a little of everything. My favorite trails were:
-Old Web's: a pretty smooth ripper with a few little lifts - almost anyone can ride it, but it takes a certain amount of skill to hold your speed through the turns. A must ride for anyone visting KT.

-Kitchel: The original machined downhill trail with berms and jumps. Again, most riders can do it, and it's a blast, but doing it fast or well. . .that's a different story.

-Up Cat Box Hill/Tody's Tour: Also called the Willoughby Way climb for the combo. 300 feet in just over a third of a mile, sandy on Cat Box, a few gullies near the top of Tody's Tour. This is only for the masochistic among us.

Summary:
The Kingdom Trails are amazing! Like the moab of the east on a smaller scale with woods instead of desert. Super fun and inviting. Laid back atmosphere with great single track for miles and miles with classic views. Lots of wonderful french-canadian folks to mingle with. All of the trails are ideal and have added bonuses with in. The most popular trails that I've heard mentioned are short downhill trails with are great fun but at most ten minutes long. There are many many others that wind and turn up and down over tons of rocks, roots, bridges and ravines. Absolutletly superb riding. Very well maintained!! Considering they are mostly on private land. Super buff single track that you dream of. The climbs are relatively easy and short but are up and down. This is coming from out west where you can climb for over an hour easy. There are soo many routes you can put together for world class riding. Mapping and signage is unbelieveable! I've never seen such coverage in this vast of an area. Every trail I rode , which was pretty much all of them except burke mt ski area, was totally buff and the natural obstacles were well featured. I'm a xc racer and dh racer so I understand the difference and appreciate mountain biking as a whole and this place defines that as much as any!! Ill be going there there for the rest of my life...

Summary:
I have been here a few times now and I have to say it's a lot of fun. If you start at the bike shop in town and make the climb up Darling Hill it's a great way to start your day...with a killer climb to warm up the legs! Once at the top the trails are fast, smooth and very flowy. The trail map is easy to follow once you've been there a couple times but I can see what people are saying about reffering to the map often on the first go. Even still the "must ride trails" are easy to find and well marked. My one complaint is due to its popularity...the "must rides" (especially Sidewinder) are getting really worn out...the dirt is getting very lose, roots are exposed (at spoke-level) and they getting very bumpy for the speed in which you travel on these things. Kitchel and Tap 'n Die never seem worn out though!

Recommended Route:
Tap 'n Die, Troll Stroll, Pound Cake, Cup cake, Sidewider, Jaw and Kitchel are all a lot of fun.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Millstone - 1-2 hours away
