The Jericho Research forest is owned and managed by the University of Vermont. The site of many ecological research and practical projects, the forest is also home to some of the best examples of a northern Vermont forest.

While there is no trail map, nor distinct trails (other than the VAST trail which runs through the property) there are several decommissioned logging roads that run throughout the backwoods of the property, accessing many different skiable ridgelines. This is a great place to wander!

There is also a well established orienteering course and several interpretation sites.

It is important to note that during winter, the VAST trail has heavy snow mobile travel and that this road should be avoided whenever possible as they travel at high speeds around sharp turns. As tempting as it is to ski it...don't! Next season a cross country ski trail should be opened.

Directions:

Take exit 11 off I-89, take left at intersection of route 2. Take right on VT route 17, followed by right on "Governor Peck Highway". Follow till you make a sharp (re: backwards) left on Tarbox road, follow signs to University forest parking.
