Community

Based on a network of logging trails, Victory Hill’s trails have expanded over the years from one V.A.S.T. snowmobile trail and the Umpire Mt. Hiking Trail to become an extensive rec network. 

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

John has improved the CircumBurke route in Victory, every year with help from, Kingdom Trail Crew led by CJ Scott. Other volunteers donated hundreds of hours to make trails on Victory Hill. These include  Darrell Gray, Kraig Sourbeer and the entire student body of Burke Mountain Academy (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018), Phil Beard, Mark White, Dan Sylvester, Thomas Bourdeau, Arthur Foelsche, Andrew McCullough, Galen Stats,  John Kaczenka, Alex McAndrew, Matthew Gilbertson, Dave Kennedy, Jacob Job, Justin Daigneault, Knight Ide, Damian Ide, Ryan McEvoy, Christsonthy Drellos, Orion Campbell-Wolk, Rye Wolfel,  Ella McAndrew, Nick Banta, Ola Portuondo, and many more.

Several Victory residents including Walt Neborsky, Walt Mitchell, John McDonald, Greg Hovey of Victory Hill Kennels, who have 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.
