The NEKET system is an ongoing project of the Vermont Horse Council (VHC) in partnership with the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation. VHC  manages the trails located on the Kingdom Heritage Lands and Victory Basin.

At this time (2024) we do not have an up-to-date map of horse trailer parking and equestrian trails. The Vermont Horse Council is working to assess the status of the trails and bridges, determine maintenance needs, and work with trail partners to repair flood damage and other issues. Information and maps will be provided in the future.

Much of the trail system is located on public lands, but segments are on private property. The trails include nearly 24 miles of existing roads in the West Mountain Wildlife Management Area and 12 miles of roads on Plum Creek Timber Company property and , 19 miles of trails within the Victory Basin including active logging roads. Equestrian trails are designated by the VHC and the ANR.

The trail system is open following mud season and closes on November 1. Many of the trails/roads are actively used for the removal of logging products so you may encounter logging equipment and other motorized vehicles.  The area is also a popular destination for hunting and fishing. Information regarding season dates and regulations can be found on kiosks near the entrances, or by contacting the Fish & Wildlife Office at (802) 751- 0110.
