Burrington Bench is one of Kingdom Trails’ Top Ten trails in the Trailforks Global Trail Rankings. The ranking is done by an algorithm that takes into account a number of uniform criteria that defines popularity amongst trail users world-wide. One of Kingdom Trails’ iconic trails, it is a must do

Burrington Bench is an awesome switch-back climbing trail which makes chicken feed of the steep hill that it ascends. The trail’s surface is generally firm and smooth but, although well constructed, some of the hairpin switchbacks are sharp, steep and technical. Despite this the elevation changes between switchback are generally moderate, making this trail suitable for most confident riders.

This is the main and easiest return from River Run back up to Bemis, at the top of the ridge, from where you go north to the iconic trio of Todey’s Tour, Tap & Die and Troll Stroll, or South to get back to the Darling Hill hub at the Wildflower Inn.

Access Info

Access from River Run at the bottom, up to Bemis.
