Been having a great time at loon this year. First season hitting a bike park. Comfortably hitting everything there, even getting some air on the Derailleur and Cinder jumps in my old age. Not big air or anything, and I don't have that whip going yet, but I'm enjoying it.

Anyways as the title states, I'm looking for the next place to step up too. I'm thinking Burke because it's close and cheap but there only seem to be a handful of intermediate trails. Not that the all the black trails scare me or anything, I ride the blacks on our local trails, but I don't wanna be slowing folks down while I take it easy.

Thoughts?

Highland is great. I'm a very novice rider but they have a nice selection of greens and blues and the blacks have b-lines on every gnarly feature.

Personally I like to go for the Wens/Thurs duro nights because there are far fewer people riding and no one is smashing it on a DH bike...

Don’t be afraid of blacks at Burke. They groom the heck out of everything. Trails flow, at times almost wouldn’t think you’re in NE, hardly any roots or rocks. Overall definitely not the most technical riding in NE, that said lots of really fun riding.
