John, Not sure why it matters, but it is listed as commerical property prior to being sold. It was owned by the city of Berlin, and was going to be part of the city industrial park. There was plans to build an hotel/motel on it, but the city water and sewer does not go up that far and the city will not pay to put it up that far...
Hi all, I have have been told there is trail from Pittsburg to Millsfield. Does anyone know where I can find a map?
We can confirm what you are saying and I have gotten a Map from the Umbagog ATV Club today with the NEW Trail connector to Millsfield on the Rice Mt. Trail(Errol to Millsfield) The map unfortunately does not have the trail marked to Pittsburg!!! We heard it was taken by going out 4 mile Brook Trail to Trail 112(snowmobile name)North and round about to Trail 20 and up to Young's Store at Back Lake. A Map from the Swift Diamond Riders would show the general directions. The distance being quoted at 60+miles one way! Bring your spare Gas Cans! We rode this two weeks ago checking for new signage but turned around at half a tank with the fear of running out and not reaching the Gas Station. I have not Heard any "official" news of this from the Pittsburg Club yet, just from the Errol people. They may be waiting for the TRAIL Damages from recent storms to be repaired before announcing its open publicly.
Here's the official scoop on the northern trails. All this info came from Chris Gamache, through an e-mail he sent me.
The first trail heading north to open is from Success to Millsfield and it should open some time in/around September 2011. At this time there is no trails open past Success, leading north, but it all being worked on.
Can someone please tell me where the Cogswell trail is in Jericho Mountain State Park? A woman was injured on that trail this past weekend, but the map doesn't show the trail>
Woman survives close call at Jericho ATV Park Sep 13, 2011 12:00 am BERLIN -- A 74-year old Columbia woman survived a close call in an ATV accident Saturday afternoon at Jericho Mountain State Park. According to N.H. Fish and Game Conservation Officer Glen Lucas, Edwina Adair was riding with friends and family at the park for the day when the group decided to take the Cogswell trail, which is designed as a ‘one way trail.’ At a very steep section of the trail, Adair decided to put her ATV into low range. As she started down the hill, a release issued by Lucas said the ATV “popped out of gear” and headed down the hill at a high rate of speed. Unsuccessful at slowing the ATV down and with a corner approaching, Adair made what Fish and Game called a good decision and rolled off the machine before it crashed into the trees. Adair was not wearing a helmet and suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries. The ATV hit a tree head-on and a previously broken tree laying horizontal to the tree ended up at chest level above the handlebars. Family members said they were thankful Adair rolled off the ATV when she did because if she had stayed on her injuries would surely have been worst. Berlin Fire Department and Emergency Medical Service responded to the scene. First aid care was administered at the scene and Adair was taken out on a backboard to Androscoggin Valley Hospital. Berlin Police also assisted in the rescue. Lucas said the incident is a good reminder that everyone should wear a helmet and protective gear at all times and take caution when riding ATVs. I believe it happened on Causeway Trail which is on the Head Pond Side and is pretty STEEP.....SOUNDS like Cogswell south of the Notch ayup!
