Lot of folks are helping to imagine and build out Victory’s trail network. John McGill has been attempting to make trails out here for nearly 10 years, by trial and error. Tim Tierney, Dan Davis and Matt Langlais of Kingdom Trails nurtured the concept of connecting VH with East Burke for the annual CircumBurke. Local shredder, Leif Trott built a small stretch of singletrack on the hill by himself in 2009. Since then, Knight Ide and Ryan McEvoy of Ideride crew have designed and built or enhanced the upper trails which currently 1950 feet altitude. In the future, the upper trails will reach 2300 feet elevation. The lowest trails begin at 1300 feet elevation.

Several other trail crews and countless volunteers have spent days and weeks whacking stumps, hauling brush and raking trail. Builders include Phil Beard, Mark White, Ryan Macevoy, Dan Sylvester, Thomas Bourdeau, Arthur Foelsche, Andrew McCullough, Galen Stats,  John Kaczenka, Alex McAndrew as well as CJ Scott, Keenan Chennail and the whole Kingdom Trails crew, Darrell Gray , Kraig Sourbeer and the entire 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 student bodies of Burke Mountain Academy (BMA)!

Several Victory residents including Walt Neborsky, Walt Mitchell and Greg Hovey of Victory Hill Kennels, who have spent many hours making the logging roads and field accessible to bikers and their cars.  Thank you Victory residents.
