Backbone Trail Details
The Backbone Trail begins at the Backbone Horse Campground. The trail traverses the Forest through
shrub-lands, pastures, old roads, and many old homestead sites. It intersects the Interloken and Burnt Hill
Trails to the south and the No-Tan-Takto trail to the north. It is a relatively flat, primitive trail with natural
tread, gravel in wet places, and traverses through fenced pastures. Please close gates behind you. From
the north, the Backbone Trail can be accessed at the corner of Ball Diamond Road and Wardner Corner
Road, at the Foster Pond parking lot, or at several other locations. Follow the signs and blaze marks. Please
practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
Caution: Hikers beware; skiers and snowmobilers also use this trail in season.
Note: Trails are closed to horses from March 15th thru May 1st due to muddy conditions
