Burlingame is a great all around trail for all walks of mountain bikers. It has some techy fun stuff, decent climbs that aren't killers, and good spinning cross country type terrain. The yellow dot trail is a good 8 mile loop that runs around watchaug pond that is a good beginner-intermediate trail. If you want to get into the more technical stuff then check out Sammy C's where someone has put in some cool obstacles including a rainbow bridge and a very difficult almost trial type riding rock garden directly next to said rainbow bridge. If you want to explore there is some awesome stuff that looks likes someone's personal playground. There are two drop sections one of which is approx 8ft to landing and another three tiered drop 6ft to 4ft to 4ft with a huge tree at the bottom that is a lot of fun if you so dare! There is also some evidence of an old section that someone had put some serious time into that consists of log type ladders about 1ft wide that could again be fun if someone wanted to take the time to patch some of it up.

Overall I would say Burlingame is an awesome spot that is worth visiting if you are coming through RI and happen to have a bike in tow!

A great 8 mile trail around Watchhaug pond. Some parts get technical. There are a lot of parts you can get good speed on. Other areas are mud and rock. Be perpared for the flies, a lot of the land around the trail is marsh.

From RT-1 go onto Prosser Trail and park at Burlingame Picnic Area ( not camping area). Follow the yellow marker trail in either direction. Its a 5 minute ride to the real rough terrain in either direction.

There are many trails that fork off from the yellow marker trail you can take. I live on the same lake the trail is on and still havent been on all the trails.

Great trails if you happen to be camping there and you ride a Mongoose from Sports Authority. Kinda like riding a bike path, only with more bugs.

Customer Service

Drive right on by and find somewhere better, riding Burlingame is not mountain biking. There's 1 uphill and 2 tech sections, the only reason to come here is if your taking your girlfriend/wife Mtn biking for the 1st time.

Take the 20 minute trip down Rte2/112 and head out to Arcadia.

Ten mile loop around Watchaug Pond. Starting from Kings Factory Road and going CCW, single track is nice going with just enough technical stuff for me (intermediate). Rocks, roots, stream crossings. 2nd half of trail has some road riding. Trail markers are real good at 1st, but get harder to find about 3/4 of the way around.

Customer Service

If you want a trail map, go to the Burlingame Park Ranger station. Yellow dot trail, go fast, turn left (just like NASCAR)
