My family would take multiple trips a year to the NEK system since 2004, the first DH trail from the top of Burke mtn. showed up around 2006 from what I remember. It was so sketch and gnarly. The last time I visited and camped on the mountain, last year, there were a number of people shuttling to the top. There are a few trails now you can access from the peak. I only know from 2nd hand accounts that they're wild. The chair access is lower than the peak and is lower grade/not as steep. So if you go, either be ready to climb a little, then pedal up the rest of the access road or have a shuttle truck from the base or town area for the gnar gnar. Also there's an abandoned fire tower at the peak, no sign for it really but anyone can get up there. Its unreal during the fall.

Ya'll should visit the Burke forum.

Can you link me to the Burke Thread? I couldn't find it :/.

Cheers man thanks Big Grin

Anyone have directions to the dirt pipe? Anyone know if it has been maintained at all?

LOL, you mean one of the first halfpipes created in the world when it was a ski resort? The area where Threshold rips through and was turned into a trickable dirt pipe for NWD 10?

Its there but I'm not sure who the frig is telling you its a fully functional dirt pipe to shred.

Directions? Hit the reef drop and take a left turn at the bottom. Has it been maintained? Goodness no

Def ride 'Lunchlady' or whatever the cool kids call it, steep rock slab right off the lift in between Threshold and the cats entrance...Keep following the trail another fun rock roll down the way which is a little more tech. One of my personal favorite lines on the mountain into reef > paddy.

Hey everyone! I’ll be going to highland quite a bit over this season, and want to explore some of the harder trails, specifically tech. The only tech trails I’ve really done have been upper happy hour, fancy feast, and shillelagh into Jack Rabbit run. I am on a 160/160 enduro bike, and am at the higher end of intermediate skill level. Anyone have trails that are must-sees? I only live about 2 hours away, so I should be able to check them all out. Thanks!

If you're on an enduro bike, you can look at what's been run at some of the past enduro races. Everything in the park is rideable on a 160/160 bike. Maiden is probably the only one where you really miss 200mm of travel. Be sure to check out some of the xc trails that can be accesses off the lift. Faux pine is a must. ODB, ODC, Threshold, Maiden, Eastern Hemlock, Lunch Lady, Jack Rabbit would be the classic tech trails.
