    New question here. Kingdom Trail Route Recommendations?

    My wife and I and some friends will be visiting KT for 3 of riding next week. We'll be staying right in East Burke. I haven't seen a trail map yet. Can anyone recommend routes for 3 days of riding? We're going to be staying on the Darling Hills side of the mountain. Also, we need recommendations for good burgers, microbrews and especially pancakes and fresh maple syrup!

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I did....

    Not a lot of information. I don't see any 3 day route recommendations. Didn't see anything about burgers or microbrews......

    Your best bet for recommendations will be from the KT office when you buy your ticket. They are very helpful and can highlight routes for you on the map.

    Toddski isn't being a, uh, twerp in that last post. It is standard procedure to ask for route suggestions from them. They will (or used to) highlight the route right on the map you'll take with you. KT website has food, etc. suggestions. Search this VT forum for lots of discussions about trails, though you will still be at a loss without a map.

    Next week is 7+ days away. Perhaps a map could be mailed to you?

    The KT Office will hook you up. Give them your parameters and they'll mix it up for you. But after a day on Darling Hill you will have a good feel for the trails and put it all together on your own.

    Thanks for sharing that JoshG. That's a great loop. Son and I are probably heading up on Sunday planning for a 5-6 hr ride.

    Now can anyone tell where that food place where you can grab a mid-ride meal? Is that near the chapel?

    Yep - as of a few weekends ago there was a grill under a tent near the chapel (between the chapel and that new building which looks to be labelled 'pavillion' on the map). Old Web's will get you there from the west. You may want to ask if it will be set up before counting on it as I imagine it may not be open throughout the entire season.
    I can barely get my mouth around it.
