Unfortunately all recreational trails in the Victory Hill Sector have been closed to biking, hiking,  hunting, hiking, and snowmobiling as a result of complications caused by an Act 250 Jurisdictional Opinon issued by the State of Vermont Act 250 Regional Coordinator, Kirsten Sultan, upon the request of Tracey Martel, Town Clerk and the Selectboard of Victory  (For more information consult our facebook page)

Victory Hill Sector is a non-profit trail organization focused on building  good trails, organizing events and protecting natural habitat on private forestland that was logged “heavily” ten years ago.  Converted skid trails and wood roads which form the backbone for the single track network and provide connections to the Victory State Forest.  The host landowner has invested thousands of hours and dollars in making the Victory Hill Sector’s trails available to the mountain biking community.

Three campsites in our field. More information and booking.

Trails close for 24 hours after any significant rain.

  2. For whatever reason, my comment to the story in VTDigger was not “printed” online, but the information contained therein may be helpful to you.

    I’m a landowner with over 40 acres, some open to VAST trails, and have never been required to fill out any sort of Act 250 permit.

    I’ve had conversations with an NEK officer for both VAST and VASA, and been told that neither organization is required to have Act 250 permits for use of public or private land.

    I don’t understand the application of this double standard

    • Hi Robert THANKS for interest in our predicament. The landowner hosts an important VAST connector trail as well as MTB and hiking trails. The Act 250 JO was called on the bike trails by Walt Neborsky the Victory selectboaed chair and VAST chapter member from Connecticut, via his town clerk (also from Connecticut) . As you know VAST frowns upon Act 250 and the landowner does not appreciate the invocation of Act 250 by this rogue VAST member. l. As a result the VAST trail is permanently closed unless Chairman Neborsky reimbursed the landowner for the damages inflicted by his irresponsible actions.

    • Hi Robert. VICTORY HILL SECTOR hosts a key VAST connector trail as well as.MTB trails. The Act 250 JO was requested by a character from Connecticut named Walt Neborsky who is the Victory selectboard chair and the local VAST chapter’s head groomer. As you know VAST does not condone Act 250 activities and the landowner has not appreciated Neborsky’s irresponsible action hence the annulment of the VAST trail contract unless.Comrade Neborsky offers to reimburse.the trail network for all.legal fees associated with the Act 250 JO and appeals process. I believe this is a.case.of a.VAST member who has shot his chapter in the foot.
