Franconia Notch Recreation Path

An Amazing Trail

September, 2021 by arooks78

What a great trail! I agree with one of the other reviews. That the trail is mostly uphill if you start from the Flume; coming back the other way is exhilarating! A couple of tough uphills, but they are short. The views are amazing. One tip: you can get going very fast downhill, but the trail is a bit bumpy so watch your speed, particularly if the trail is wet.

Goffstown Rail Trail

Fun Ride with Some Nice Surprises

September, 2021 by nhsteeler

This trial is great for those who like to mountain bike, but are not hardcore. It is mostly gravel with a few sandy and paved areas here and there. Trail starts around 1/4 mile from West Side Arena in Manchester which is where we parked (and it goes seamlessly into the Piscataqoug Trail) until right before the center of Goffstown. There are some real fun surprises on here like a few spots to go swim and/or fish at Glen Lake, a few good scenic spots to take pictures, etc.

Presidential Rail Trail

Rough for the first 8 miles...

September, 2021 by bill.mason7680

I started at the western trailhead. The surface for the first four miles is large diameter crushed stone. The same stone used in the trailhead parking lot. It's not the kind of crushed stone you put on a multi use recreation trail. The next four miles was basically rough single track. I rode my gravel bike based on the (lackluster) description above. I jumped off at 8 miles and returned to my car on back roads. The crushed stone listed on the surface description is very misleading. This would be fine with a mountain bike. Front suspension would be best.

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

Once we got to the Sanitation site north of Keene the trail wasn't more then a goat trail. Muddy, rocky narrow, and not very much fun. We turned around. Maybe it would be better from Walpole south.

Roland Bergeron Bike Path

Nice bike path.

September, 2021 by dhaigney

Enjoyed the ride as there were not too many people using this path. It is along the roadside so it is not a wooded scenic path. The upside to this if you get hurt you would be found immediately. You can get some miles in especially if you do the path twice. Parked in the police parking lot. It can't get safer than that! I enjoy it very much and will be using this bike path a lot.

Ashuelot Recreational Rail Trail

Hinsdale to Keene

September, 2021 by aldcon_tl

This was a bike ride from Depot Street in Hinsdale to Keene State College area. Beautiful views of Ashuelot River along ride and several covered bridges. Several old mill buildings in various state of disrepair to look at. The trail from Depot Street to near Riverside Lane in Swansey has good sections of loose gravel with several sections of puddles and mud. This part of the trail is good for mountain bikes and for those that don't mind going through puddles that vary in length from a few feet to over 20 feet long. Some are deep too. A few potholes and gopher holes in this section and one bridge with bad decking boards. I'd rate this first section of the ride a 2. From Riverside Lane up to Keene trail is wide with good gravel base. Easy for most bikes to navigate this. I'd rate this section a 4.

Nashua River Rail Trail

Could use a repaving for bikes

September, 2021 by mrowley6

The tree roots and frost heaves make biking a bit of a pain. Maybe that's the plan, to use those for speed bumps?

Monadnock Recreational Rail Trail

Excellent ride into Jaffrey! Nice wide trail, well maintained by local snowmobile club. Pleasant views along conservation areas.Far end towards Rindge was a bit more technical with many rails still in place.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Fun ride in the woods!

August, 2021 by demcvane

This trail is for mountain or hybrid bikes, definitely not road bikes.
Agree with others in that there are more pedestrians near Wolfboro but the trail gets much less traveled the farther away you go.
Also agree that the trails are narrow but this is not an issue because the visibility is so good. Most of the time, you can see people coming from other direction literally hundreds a feet ahead of time. I did get stuck behind a few slower bikers but was able to pass at one of the railroad track crossovers.
As the railroad track crossovers, you just have to slow down and ensure your front tire is crossing at a 90 degree angle. I didn’t have any issues at all but just be mindful, slow down and steer the front tire to cross over perpendicular to the rail.
So, definitely some things to consider and manage but well worth it in my opinion.
