VH’s network has grown from one snowmobile trail, a few ski-able skid roads, and a hiking trail, to become a network of mountain bike focused trails. 

Initial support for bike trails came from Tim Tierney and Dan Davis of Kingdom Trails, who put the organization’s weight behind efforts to create the annual CircumBurke event, which they co-founded in 2010.

John McGill improved the CircumBurke route in Victory, every year with help from volunteers from Burke Mountain Academy led by Darrell Gray, and the Kingdom Trails crew led by CJ Scott. In recent years, Knight Ide and Ryan McEvoy of IdeRide built a series of expert trails farther up the hill.  Hundreds of volunteers have also donated thousands of hours to keep the trails alive.

Victory locals have also spent many hours fixing the logging roads and mowing fields for bikers and their cars.  And a special thanks to our membership volunteer, Carol Easter, she has gone beyond the call of duty in helping us after hours and on weekends.
