New Hampshire White Mountain Biking

new hampshire mountain biking,nh bike trailsCHATHAM

Basin Trail 
Route 113 in North Chatham at Wild River Campground
Length: 4.5 miles
The Basin-Cascades Trail follows the lower part of Cascade Brook from the Pemi Trail near the Basin to the Cascade Brook Trail. While it offers views of scenic cascades and gorges, it is rough walking and not an easy approach to Lonesome Lake or Kinsman Pond.


Franconia Notch State Park Recreational Trail
On I-93/Rte 3, Franconia Notch Parkway
Length: 8.8 miles Paved Paths
Phone: 823-8800
This paved trail parallels the Parkway. The 20-mile round-trip brings riders within easy reach of park attractions, including Flume Gorge, The Old Main of the Mountain Profile, Profile Lake, Boise Rock, The Basin, Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, and Echo Lake. There’s no fee for the use of the bike path. However, fees are charged at some attractions.


Moose Brook State Park
Gorham, U.S. Route 2off Jimtown Road
Length: 4 miles
Phone: 466-3860
Moose Brook is one of the oldest parks in the system. The trails were originally laid out and constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s. The four-mile loop within the park has advanced terrain.


Crawford Notch State Park
Rt. 302
Phone: 374-2272
Miles of unspoiled rugged natural beauty in a scenic mountain pass. Crossed by trails, some of which lead to incomparable views of Presidential Range.


Loon Mountain Ski
Directions: I-93 – Exit 32
If your looking for serious downhill then ride the skyship to the top for a small fee of course. The xc trails are also fun to ride. Loon mtn also host a mountain bike race each year, “Snickers Fat tire Classic”.


Cranmore Ski
Directions: Route 16N
Scenery includes the Presidential Range. It is situated at the edge of North Conway, the quintessential White Mountains tourist village. Just a short hop away you will find a variety of restaurants, a dinner train to Crawford Notch, shopping, and the Mount Washington Observatory Resource Center. Unlike some downhill centers, which pare the route choices down to two or three, Cranmore has a large number of trails open.

Black Cap
Route 16 North. Take a right on Hurricane Mountain Road. You will see signs about a mile up for the trail.
Length: 6 miles
You may want to drive to the top of the dirt mountain Rd. A pretty easy trail, not too technical or fast. If you are short on time and close this is a decent choice.


Cherry Mountain Loop
From Twin Mountain travel east on Route 302 for 3 miles. The parking area for the trail is 200 yards past the Zealand Campground.
Length: 25 miles
It has nearly 30 miles of distance. You’ll go up, up, up, and down much too briefly. The aerobic challenge comes of course from the climbing, and long steep descents demand the ability to ride within your limit. Watch the speed limit when falling down Cherry Mountain Road and the road through Jefferson Notch, for there’s bound to be oncoming car traffic. Trail Surface: Maintained gravel roads and pavement…


Brown Ash Swamp/Dickey Notch Trail
Directions: Waterville Valley take I-93 to Exit 28 (Route 49). Follow Route 49 East for 7 miles and park at the Six Mile Bridge. Ride your bike across the bridge, then take a right onto Orris Road, the trail begins at the end of Orris.
Length: 20 Miles
Brown Ash Swamp: A really fun ride with challenging singletrack. This is a great ride to combine with other fine rides in the area to make a full day. Dickey Notch Trail: This is fun singletrack and very beautiful riding on country roads.
