Description

The Newport Town Forest is an awesome place to ride. The forest's trails connect into a much vaster network of local trails. Expect to do a lot of climbing, and a lot of exploring. 

The 1362 foot summit, The Pinnacle can be reached on an old doubletrack. That doubletrack is best accesed from the Barton & Colt Trailhead. That's loacted in a dirt parking lot on Summer Street just north of house # 183.

Most people park near the Newport Middle / High School and access the trails behind the running track. 

Expect to spend a few day's exploring the Pinnacle and the adjacent trails. 

Much of the trail work and the first map at the top of the page were created by Team Pinnacle. Check out their website for more information on the Newport Town Forest as well as other local riding areas. Read more about Newport Town Forest / The Pinnacle

CNH NEMBA Movie Night

Date

5/30/18 6:30pm

MTB MOVIE AT THE RED RIVER THEATRE ==>>  THURSDAY, JUNE 7 AT 5:30 PM

 

Please join the Concord Hospital Trust’s Pedaling for Payson Fundraising Committee on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at 5:30 PM for their annual Movie Night at the Red River Theatre in Concord, NH. The $10 cover charge includes a reception that features craft beers, sliders and other great food, followed by a full-length feature mountain biking film.

The movie this year will be “Reveal The Path,” a visually stunning adventure documentary that features world-class mountain bikers, including Tour Divide founder Matthew Lee, star of “Ride The Divide,” and Kurt Refsnider, 2011 Tour Divide winner. The film explores Europe’s snow-capped mountains, Scotland’s lush valleys, Alaska’s rugged coastal beaches, Nepal’s elevated wonders and Morocco’s high desert landscapes. Along the way the riders connect with locals who are living modest yet seemingly fulfilling lives, leading the filmmakers to question what it means to live an inspired life – however humble or extravagant.
