Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Fantastic Trail for Biking

October, 2020 by leeds.nudd

Very confused at some of the reviews here. Fit mid-30s guy here, though rarely bike, completed the entire trail both ways today on a hybrid rental bike. Yes this trail is gravel and also now plenty of fallen leaves, and it’s perfectly appropriate for a bike ride as long as it’s an appropriate bike. Don’t try to take a road bike with skinny tires on this trail. Enough room along the majority of the trail for bikers to pass each other without stopping, although, yes, once or twice along the 12 mile stretch you may actually need to stop and walk your bike when passing. Such a beautiful ride.

Lake Winnisquam Scenic Trail

great for skating

A little more hilly than anticipated but a lot of fun.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

worst possible trail for bicycles

October, 2020 by moonlightgraham2

Beautiful setting, but clearly not designed for bike riders. Much of the 12 miles of trail (Wolfeboro to Wakefield) runs between the confines of remaining railroad rails, so despite the filled-in smooth surface there is no possibility that riders approaching from opposite directions will have room to pass each other. The many walkers we encountered were all considerate to voluntarily step aside and allow us to pass, although we repeatedly needed to hold up for other riders, giving them the right-of-way. One group of riders that included young children attempting to manage the difficult passages unsupervised caused my wife to take a bad fall. We have used and enjoyed many rail trails in NH -- this one deserves to be crossed off every bicycler's list.

Sawyer River Trail / Sawyer River Road

Very pretty in the fall

October, 2020 by jim_wang

I started from Sawyer River Road parking lot and biked all the way to Swift River near 112 which blocks bike access. So technically you cannot finish the whole trail, even very close. Sawyer River Rd is very good to bike. But think about Sawyer River Trail again before you continue. The trail is not maintained for biking. I had to carry the bike in several locations. There is a big falling tree completely blocking the trail.

The whole trail is very very pretty in the fall. I uploaded some photos.

WOW Trail

No Thanks

September, 2020 by jimmath123

This isn’t really a rail trail. It is a trail that parallels a working rail. A lot of the trail goes through commercial areas, and it is likely you will see homeless people and the less desirable parts of town. More an urban passage. Given where the trail goes, the views are unremarkable.

Rockingham Recreational Rail Trail (Portsmouth Branch)

Not for us

September, 2020 by r2tguy

September 5, 2020. My wife, her friend and I rode this trail yesterday from Massabesic Lake Park to Epping and back. All three of us have eBikes with no suspension, so they're classified as road bikes. All three of us are in our 70s.

The write-up of this trail reads, 'There are a few at-grade road intersections east of town, as the old railbed passes beneath the roads. Some of these underpasses have low ceilings, however, as the bottom of the culverts are planked with wood, so cyclists and equestrians should be prepared to dismount.' The culverts aren't so bad although they are very dark inside. What the write-up fails to mention is that the culverts are at the top of a steep incline about 50 feet high and this incline is strewn with large rocks. It is necessary to push the bike up these inclines and it is extremely difficult going. These inclines need to be made less steep and the rocks need to be removed.

The trail itself is tiring because there are no paved breaks. Parts of the crushed stone trail are smooth, but there's a reason New Hampshire is called the Granite State. While riding it's necessary to keep you eyes on the trail to avoid hitting outcropped rocks. And roots. These are the things that cause bicycles to have flat tires so be sure to bring a flat repair kit with you. Our day was beautiful but the sunlight was shaded on the trail making it difficult to distinguish the rocks and roots in the shadows.

This trail would be beautiful in October with the fall colors but it would be a sure bike basher because the fallen leaves will further hide the outcropped rocks and roots. I had to stop along the trail to tighten a screw on the right side of my bike that holds the rear fender brace and luggage rack. On the way back the screw on the left side had vibrated completely out so my bike was falling apart on this trail.

To make matters worse we ran out of battery power on the way back and our bikes weigh about 60 pounds! Not fun.

Perhaps much younger and more athletic folks with fat tire bikes would enjoy this trail but it was not for us.

P.S. In Epping the DG Cycle Sports shop is very near the trail. We had lunch at The Beach Plum, which is our favorite restaurant for lobster rolls and fried clams.

Boscawen to Highland Lake

September, 2020 by aldcon_tl

Parked at lot at ballfield at end of Depot Street in Boscawen. Go to very end of Depot Street and lot is on the right. Took trail for about 16 miles to town beach at Highland Lake on Channel Road. Slightly uphill all the way. Very few soft spots. In general all trail all packed gravel. Public beach also at Webster Lake ( about 13 miles from Depot St.).

Rockingham Recreational Rail Trail (Portsmouth Branch)

Worth the trip !

August, 2020 by rgbww

I rode from the East end in Newfield, and went as far as the East Candia Depot parking lot. My odometer had it at 17 miles.
The trail is tree lined for the vast majority of the way. A nice spot to take a break was at Onway Lake, 15 mile point.
There are two major road crossings, but other than that the crossings are on residential roads with minimal traffic.
Go and enjoy it !!

Dover Community Trail

Enjoyable, Difficult to Follow at Points

August, 2020 by rscote05

My husband, my dog and I walked the trail this weekend. The weather was perfect. The trail is really three separate sections. We parked at the Watson Rd entrance and that portion terminated at the end of Whittier Falls Way. You then cross the street to find the unmarked second entrance into a field. You follow that until it comes out at 4th St. The third portion of the trail starts at the end of the parking lot of the Dover Transportation Center and ends at Fisher St. We were able to navigate it by referencing the map in the App. River views were pretty and it was relatively flat.

Mountain Division Trail

great bike ride!

August, 2020 by meryl.block.weissman

The family all loved this rail trail. The unpaved section was a bit hilly and rocky (about 1 mile). The paved section ran parallel to the train tracks. Really cool bridge over the water. Also stopped by the Orchard Ridge farm along the way. Visited the animals and had tasty donuts, fudge and cheese.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Nice Trail

August, 2020 by lynnnagle

We rode from Wolfeboro 7 miles out and back with our three kids. I was very nervous after reading the reviews of people getting hurt. We almost didn’t do this trail because of the reviews. The part we rode was great! Yes, there are parts where you have to switch between the trail and the track but if you are careful and SLOW down this is not an issue. The trail is mostly flat with great scenery . I say a it’s a great trail!
