Sure, people first started coming to Burke Mountain for its seemingly bottomless snow. But when the powder goes away and the days get warm and long, a whole new world of fun emerges.

Ride your mountain bike right from your home at Bear Path onto hundreds of miles of trails that not only snake up and around Burke Mountain, but fan out through the “Kingdom.” Not a big fan of pedal power,  Burke Mountain Resort offers lift-served mountain biking throughout the summer. If you don’t want to touch a pedal at all, you can just jump on the lift and hike from the summit taking in the views of Vermont’s Green Mountains and the Presidential Range in New Hampshire. The more nautically-inclined can go sailing down on Lake Willoughby and those looking for some hidden adventure can hike into anyone of dozens of crystal-clear swimming holes that are tucked away throughout the area.

For all of the adventure that exists out of your door, checkout
