Blueberry Lake/Green Mountain National Forest
Blueberry Lake is on Plunkton Road. Park in any of the access or pull-off areas. Trailheads are on the opposite side of Plunkton Road from the lake.
Leonard's Loop: Start at the main trailhead on the north side of the earthen dam. Follow the trail to the signed intersection, then down to a bridge over the stream. After crossing, climb briefly until reaching an intersection. Go right for an easier climb, left for a moderately tougher ascent. These routes reconnect at a main intersection with the Flying Squirrel loop. Leonard’s Loop is named for Leonard Robinson, the original designer of Blueberry Lake and the owner of Blueberry Lake Touring Center.
Flying Squirrel: To access Flying Squirrel, start with Leonard’s Loop or enter at the Gravel Pit trail, a short steep climb. As the climb levels out, there is an intersection with the Flying Squirrel loop. Go right to meet the Leonard’s Loop/Flying Squirrel intersection, about 0.25 miles farther on the trail. Go left to ride the other direction on Flying Squirrel.
The Blueberry Lake trails were designated in 2013 as an IMBA Model Trail-Gateway network, great for beginners.
