Hiking & Biking Trails

Chestnut Mountain Park is a huge undertaking that will require a multi-phased approach, including several different areas as part of the whole park. In the future, people of all ages and experience levels will be able to enjoy over 15 miles of trails spanning both the Frontcountry and Backcountry.


Paper Town Express (Lower)

0.8 mile to Berm Park

Paper Town Express is the only trail leading into the park from the parking lot and Bridge Park. This is an out-and-back trail, meaning you start and end at the same location and follow a single trail to an end point and then return along the same route. 

The lower section of this trail is a two-way trail for hikers, however bikers can only go up this section of trail. Bikers should use Bear Country when exiting the park.


Berm Park


Berm Park, a FREE public bike park, is an oasis for mountain bikers who are seeking a more active biking experience. Essentially a "park within a park", Berm Park consists of over a mile of bike trails ranging from beginner to expert level.

0.6 mile to Bridge Park

Bear Country is a bike-only trail used for exiting the park's trail system. Bikers are only allowed to use Paper Town Express when going up and must use Bear Country when coming down. 



Paper Town Express (Upper)

MULTI-USE TRAIL | Hiking & Biking
0.8 mile to Turnpike

MULTI-USE TRAIL | Hiking & Biking
1.1 mile round trip

Turnpike is an out-and-back, "lollipop" trail with a loop at the end. It is the most accessible trail opportunity in the Backcountry Trails. It provides opportunities for families and kids to get out and enjoy more of this beautiful property. This trail can be repeated to add more distance to your hike. * Bikes go to the left around the loop and hikers go the right, exiting the trail in the same direction.
