A wonderful park space for picnics, sledding, and biking, Burgher Hill is also home to Kentville’s 4X (pronounced four-cross) track. 4X is a form of mountain bike racing that combines elements of BMX racing with mountain biking. The tracks are fast, technical, and extremely fun! The course for Kentville’s Burgher Hill was specially-designed with riders of all ages and abilities in mind. The track includes features like bridges, a rock garden, rollers, berms, and jumps. A raised start ramp helps riders get off to a fast start!
The bike track on the hill is an awesome addition to Kentville’s lineup of recreation facilities and has already generated buzz within the mountain bike community. Riders are reminded that helmets are required at all times.
Of course, Burgher Hill is also a destination for sledding enthusiasts. The track takes up only a portion of the east side of the hill, and a large area of the hill was reserved as a “sledding zone” in the site plan from the beginning. In the winter months there is a community playbox with sleds to borrow.
