Lake Winnisquam Scenic Trail

great for skating

October, 2020 by benjaminrockwell333

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.

Whitman Spring Road Trail

awesome walk with the pups.

September, 2020 by cmesuitlady

This is an old dirt road that’s been gated off at the end of the tar portion. Nice, flat, and wide with occasional views of Lake Auburn. It’s a favorite with local runners. We have encountered a few dogs off leash despite local ordinances so beware of that. A nice early morning walk or run.

Papermill Trail

Bike between Davis St and Frost Mill boat launch to get sweet spot of trail

September, 2020 by curlybrian

Recommend parking at Capital Ave (in the middle of trail) then bike each way. We stopped at School, but trail continues on/along road to Lisbon. There is a nice picnic table near Capital Ave parking lot, right along the river. The section between Davis St and the boat launch is right along the river and has an A+ scenic rating. Trail is lots of short up and down hills, probably not flat more than 50% of the way. Past the boat launch is a significant wooded uphill about 1/2 mile, we didn't need a rest but casual bikers will. That section is not recommended for small children that won't know how to brake. Bring a picnic and enjoy the short trail. No street crossings on the recommended section. p.s. I don't think this is a rail trail, though it goes roughly parallel to track.

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!

Lake Winnisquam Scenic Trail

very pleasant!

August, 2020 by lauriekeve

A real treat! Lovely views of lake for first 1/2 mi. Park at Osborne’s on Rte 3. Perfect for biking, although some sharp bends.

Dover Community Trail

I just tried this trail yesterday 8 /14/20

August, 2020 by matandjet

I parked on Fisher street, you have to park on side of the road. The first .6 mile is beautiful, clean. Nice view of Dover from the bridge. You come out at the train station and have to find the trailhead on fourth street. I passed the trailhead several times as it isn’t marked. It is right before the bridge on the right past the energy company. Be careful if on a bike as it is a steep down hill followed by lots of tree roots. I walked my bike past that part, the water is to your left. The path then becomes grassy thru a field and comes out to another street. I turned around at that point as I wasn’t sure which way. Lesson learned, get a map before riding on this trail.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Ideal if you time it right

August, 2020 by mrtetreault

I’ve ridden and walked all over this trail over the years as a local yocal. The portion from downtown Wolfeboro to Fernald station is basically for walkers/joggers only. There are a ton out all times of the year and rightfully so, it’s mint. I got an e-bike recently, and have found the portion from Fernald Station in Wolfeboro out to Wakefield is the best for bikes. It’s crushed stone the entire way and limited foot traffic. Picnic tables along the way too with spots to chill.
