      Borderland State Park was created in the early 1970's. The property had been owned by the Ames family since 1906. It was acquired by the state in 1971. A significant feature of the park is the Ames mansion. This has been preserved and is open to the public for tours. The Friends of Borderland have been instrumental in preserving the mansion and in doing fundraising for the general upkeep and improvement of the park.

      For mountain bikers Borderland is almost a paradise. What keeps it from being one of the best-ranked riding areas in the region is its lack of intermediate level trails. There are more than enough hard technical trails to satisfy anyone. Even a few "bare rock" sections reminiscent of the Lynn Woods or Moab.

      And there are lots of easy trails. These wind around on dirt roads, circumnavigate the park's many lakes, go by the historic Ames mansion and provide a rider with a scenic tour of the area.

      Intermediate trails are few and far between though. Stray off the dirt roads into the park's many singletracks and you'll quickly be challenged by and abundance of roots and rocks. The singletracks, located mostly in the northern end of the park are a lot of fun. But beginners will find themselves walking a lot. Oh well, remember that old saying, "Every mountain bike comes equipped with a hiker." Well, at Borderland that hiker will get some exercise.

      NEMBA has been very active in borderland. We've build bridges, done a lot of trail work, and even put in some new singletrack trails. Including Bob's trail, which honors Bob Babineau, the park's former supervisor.

      Come to Borderland when you want to go for a fun ride with your family, or when you just want to cruise around in the sunshine. Come to borderland if you want to challenge yourself on unremittingly technical trails. But don't come to Borderland if your cup of tea is smooth mellow singletracks.

      Recently SEMASS NEMBA and the Friends of Borderland joined together to buy a Muck Truck. It is already being used productively to improve Borderland's trails.
