We are very excited to be opening the beginning of our new Backcountry Trails section of Chestnut Mountain! This area begins with an extension of the existing Papertown Express trail and is open to two-way traffic for both hikers and bikers! The new section of the Papertown extends up through the new trailhead, another 0.8 mile. Papertown Express will ultimately take trail users to the top of Chestnut Mountain and provide access to all future trails currently under construction in the Backcountry.
The second trail that will be opening today is Turnpike, a two-way trail for both hikers and bikers. It offers a "lollipop" trail and is the most accessible trail opportunity in the Backcountry of Chestnut Mountain. It provides opportunities for families and kids to get out and enjoy more of this beautiful property. Turnpike is a .55-mile out-and-back with a loop at the end that can be repeated to add more distance to your visit.
