This property totals over 9,400 acres in southeast Madison County and makes up the core area for the Brookfield Trail System. This highly acclaimed horse and snowmobile trail system has over 130 miles of trails set throughout three state forests (Charles Baker State Forest, Brookfield Railroad State Forest, and Beaver Creek State Forest) that make up the Brookfield unit management area. The assembly area on Moscow road is the beginning of the trail system. The assembly and camping area can accommodate campers and approximately 150 horses with covered tie stalls, stallion box stalls, a pavilion and picnicking and camping facilities. Drinking water, accessible toilets and a mounting platform for people with disabilities is also provided. The recreational trails are open for hiking, horseback riding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and mountain biking use. Equestrian riding has a season set from May 1st through October 31st each year. Several trails are open for ATV use by permit only for people with disabilities (PDF) (446 KB). Organized trail rides or events need a temporary revocable permit (TRP) which can be obtained through the local Lands and Forests office in Sherburne. Plan on two to three weeks for processing prior to the event.
