Berlin Property/Jericho Mountain State Park

Hello,

I would like to take a moment to commend all the people at the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation for your efforts and accomplishments concerning the new State Park at Jericho Lake. As a member of the Northeast Association of 4WD Clubs (NEA4WDC), I am extremely pleased to see the inclusion of four wheel drive trails within the park. Similar to ATV’s, off highway four wheel drive recreation is an excellent way for families to spend a quality day together enjoying the outdoors.

After reviewing the tentative plans for the Park, I would like to encourage the creation of additional four wheel drive trails in the Head Pond Area. In support of this effort, I would like to offer my help as well as the help of the NEA4WDC and off highway community in the planning and execution of these trails. Most of the members of the NEA4WDC and off highway community would be interested in both green and blue trails with some black trails added as opportunity allows.

Since the NEA4WDC has been working with private land owners over the last several years, we have many talented trail creators within our organization. Members of the NEA4WDC and off highway community would like the chance to help define and design all three of the proposed trail ratings within the park. As with the private land we steward, many families would be able to help in the actual creation of the trails if the Park would like the assistance.

I would also like to thank you for the warm reception our NEA4WDC representative received at the December 6, 2006 meeting. We are happy to see the park is ADA accessible. This follows our own efforts in our Access for All Program. With the help of the local northeast off highway community, the NEA4WDC is in the initial stages of creating a capable off highway vehicle. This specially modified vehicle will allow those with physical conditions that currently keep them from enjoying the woods, the opportunity to safely explore and enjoy the blue and green trails within this Park as well other NEA4WDC land holdings.

Thank you again for all your efforts and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Sincerely,
Name

Memebers please do this. I spent 6 hours in my Zuk to attend the meeting. It takes seconds to sent the message to DRED. We have not had a State want to make us trails to use up to this point. NH Expects visitiors from other states so if you do not live in NH, DRED still wants to hear from you. You could even offer to pay a higher sticker fee for being an out of state resident. This OHV park can lead to other OHV parks.
Thanks for your support.

Hello, Marc here from Berlin. I have attended as many meetings on Jericho as I could. I have submitted the paper work with Sen. John Gallus for changing the rules to allow 4x4's. This is what I sent John and Chris Gamache of the Trails Bureau:

An OHRV is defined as and ATV’s under 60” wide, under 1200lbs and has tires that hold no more than 10 lbs of air specified by its manufacturer. This is to allow for the growing number of utility vehicles, which are a little larger than an ATV.

Another type of OHRV is the 4x4 vehicle. The 4x4 is defined as a four-wheel drive vehicle exceeding 61” in width, weighs over 1201 lbs with tires that hold more than 10 lbs of air. Only OHRV registered 4x4 vehicles will be allowed access to State Trails specifically designated by the Trails Bureau. These trails will be clearly marked.

The current OHRV registration fees and decals should be used for the 4x4’s. This would allow for the dispersion of funds through the current system already in place.

There is positive support for this change, and things are headed in the right direction. Thanks guys.
