Fat Biking

Fat Biking

Want to Fat Bike? This is where you need to go – the Kingdom Trails in East Burke, Vermont.  Kingdom Trails was just selected as one of the “Top Ten Fat Bike Trails in the United States” by Singletracks.  Singletracks.com says “While the number of fat bike-specific trails continues to grow, high quality trails maintained for fat biking are still relatively few and far between.”  They tracked down the Top Ten Fat Bike Trails in the United States.  And the only worthy Fat Bike Trail system in the Northeast is Kingdom Trails right here in East Burke, Vermont.

The Kingdom Trails is a renowned Northeastern mountain bike destination during the summer, but thanks to snowmobile and snowshoe packing, the fun continues there all the way through the winter! According to the Kingdom Trails website, “This year, we are snowmobile and snowshoe packing the entire network of singletrack mountain biking trails on the East Side of Darling Hill,”  So get on over here and enjoy some awesome singletrack fun!

The trails are well designed, making it a great trail system for cross country skiers, snowshoers, and fat bikers. Snowshoe and Nordic trails are separate from the fat bike trails. The Kingdom Trails Nordic Adventure Center packs the entire network of trails on the east side of Darling Hill with snowshoes and snowmobiles, giving fat bikers 20 miles of singletrack to choose from, including big time summer favorites like Pines, which offers year-round flow. Bonus: the trails are even marked like ski slopes—green for beginner, black for experts. Day passes are $15.

RentalsThe KT Nordic Adventure Center shares a building with Village Sports, which rents Surly Pugsleys ($55) and the new Ice Cream Trucks ($70), which have 4.8” tires offering amazing traction.

Kingdom Trails Association

We are very encouraged by the growing popularity of winter biking and are excited to provide a selection of trails for folks to get out there and pedal a fat bike in the snow. This year, we are snowmobile and snowshoe packing the entire network of singletrack mountain biking trails on the East Side of Darling Hill as well as a portion of the West Side.  Summertime favorites such as Pines, Ridge to Rim, and Riverwood can be enjoyed on your bike all winter long now too!!!

We groom about 25 miles of singletrack on Darling Hill.

Conditions have to be right not to damage our grooming efforts.

To reduce conflict and lower impact of snow biking on our existing populace of skiers as well as protect our relationship with landowners we ask you to follow these guidelines. We cannot stress enough that it is up to YOU to keep this activity a positive factor for our community as well as our future investment in growing the sport.
