A completely MAMBA-built trail network on Irish Hill above Berlin Pond Reservoir in Berlin. Open May 15th (Berlin Town Forest property) and May 31 for Boyer State Forest to November 1.
Driving directions: Take Berlin St up from Montpelier and continue straight past the left turn for the hospital. Crosses VT 62 past Town and Country Honda and the Shaw’s Plaza. Take a right on Town Clerk Rd, go under the Interstate, then take a left on Paine Turnpike. Bear right to go around the right side of the pond (Brookfield Rd.). Road climbs and then bends sharply to left. Continue straight to the parking area about 1 mile up on the right. Trails begin on the right side of the ORV road (Darling Rd).
Note: This is the only trail on Irish Hill which MAMBA is involved with. As of July, 2008, we’ve been notified by the Berlin Conservation Commission that there is an unapproved trail elsewhere on Irish Hill; as of 2012 illicit use of this trail on private land continues. Please do not ride any unapproved trails, and absolutely DO NOT build new trails without checking with MAMBA first. We’ve been working for many years to secure permission to build trail on State, Berlin, Montpelier, and private land on Irish Hill. Any unauthorized building/riding might destroy all of that work.
