Nope, councilor.....its the NEW Success Pond Atv Club he's talking about and their paperwork is in Concord waiting for approval....That makes two New Clubs in the North Country this Year....also look for Trails to opening right away as they are on the BOT Fast Track............BUT We shall see!
We are working with the new club in the Success Pond area, and should be approved shortly. And I know that the Bot is working with some of the land owners to get that worked out. This should add 12 - 16 miles at the end of the Success Trail system. It is a noce work in progress...will keep you all informed.
thnax for the info. It will be real nice 2 ,ctually3 clubs connected to each other. Just a matter of time until we go from Jericho all the way to Pittsburg. A lot of good things happening in the north country for ATVs now a days. And it is about time.
Saturday, June 15, 2013 is the grand opening of Ride the Wilds, Coos County, the new 1,000-mile+ interconnected ATV trail system. According to Harry Brown, President of the North Country OHRV Coalition, the all day event will be held at Coleman State Park in Stewartstown and will be presented by the Coalition and the New Hampshire Bureau of Trails.
The North Country OHRV Coalition was honored with the Business of the Year award from the North Country Chamber of Commerce at its annual meeting. Presented by Governor Maggie Hassan, the award was accepted by Harry Brown, president of the OHVR Coalition. Congratulations to the Coalition and all its volunteers for this well deserved recognition for the determination and hard work on making the interconnected ATV trail system a reality. This project will allow tourists to traverse the county and encourage economic vitality throughout the region.
I rode Gorham to Pittsburg and back on the 22nd of June. Was a great ride. Took the new Sunset Riders trail from Success to Millsfield. From that point I took the most direct route to Pittsburg, crossing the highway and eventually taking Greenough pond road up to the new eastern connector trail to the Pittsburg village. Gassed up at the first station you come to after coming into town from the Murphy Dam. Didn't have enough time/daylight to venture further into Pittsburg and the western loop from Pittsburg down to Colebrook wasn't open yet so I turned back there and went back the same route I came. I did make it up on one tank of gas, though I was carrying extra gas as a precaution. I would recommend to anyone going from Berlin to Millsfield to carry spare gas at least until they open up the new trail from Millsfield to the center of Errol. Berlin to Success is 18 miles, Success to Millsfield is 20 miles, and it is then another 21 miles from there to the nearest gas at Diamond Peaks (or 41 miles to Pittsburg if you go the route I did.) Also be very careful on the Hamlin Brook Road portion of the Success to Millsfield trail and stay well to the right. It is a very active logging road and I passed 3 logging trucks going in the other direction when I was going through. My ride was 181 miles total and took about 9-10 hours to do up and back with an hour lunch stop.
I did want to give kudos to all the clubs that have made this possible, this is an unbelievable trail system. Can't wait to go back again to check out more of the new trails.

Fantastic News – The long awaited Seven Islands Trail into downtown Errol – food, gas, lodging now available on the Northeast side of the system – will open on Saturday, September 28th. The trail commences on the Millsfield Pond Road near Seven Islands Bridge and then travels 8 miles into Errol. In addition, Routes 16 and 26 in downtown Errol will be open to ATV traffic in order to access local businesses. This is a significant milestone and thank go to everyone working together to get this done. Wow!
