State's first four-by-four course taking shape
Work on the 2.5-mile loop course began three weeks ago and is continuing on the weekends, said Marc Pouliot, president of the Milan-based North Woods Off Road club (NWOR).
So far, he said, a quarter-mile of the course, whose trailhead will be located off the visitor center parking lot at Jericho Mountain, has been cut.
Unlike off-highway-recreational vehicles (OHRVs), which can use the 1,000 miles of interconnected trails within the Ride the Wilds system, 4x4s can only be driven on private land with the owner’s permission.
Located off Route 110 west of downtown Berlin, Jericho Mountain State Park was created in 2005 by the state with the express goal of it becoming the first network of OHRV trails on state land. The Bureau of Trails also envisioned it as a place for a 4x4 trail.
The course will be rated “easy to moderate,” he said, but there will also be some of what he called double-black diamond sections, similar to the most difficult trails on a ski slope.
