Moose Brook State Park in Gorham NH offers camping, swimming and of course mountain biking. The park's 774 acres host a number of excellent singletrack trails as well as some scenic relaxing dirt roads. It's a fun place to ride and a great place to bring the family for a picnic.

There are 59 campsites which are open Memorial Day weekend to Columbus Day weekend. Call 1-877-647-2757 to make a reservation,

Notes: From the State website:

"Located in the White Mountains Region, just north of the Presidential Range, Moose Brook State Park is in an area of unparalleled scenery and offers a variety of outdoor activities. The park is ideally located for fishing in the Peabody and Moose rivers. Moose Brook flows through the park, and after passing through a shallow warming pool, feeds the swimming area with cool, clear mountain water. Picnicking and swimming are enjoyed against the scenic mountain backdrop. The many trails in the park are great for exploring on foot or mountain bike."

Description

Located in Northern New Hampshire right next to Mt Washington Great Glen offers a wonderful mountain bike experience. Like most for fee facilities you can expect that the trails are well maintained and that they were created with mountain biking in mind. This is not the case at most of the places where we ride. Normally, as we all know, we're mostly riding around on trails that were made by others. Old logging roads, motorcycle and ATV trails, utility rights of way, and long existing foot trails. Trails that in short, while lots of fun, weren't really designed with mountain biking in mind.

Great Glenn is an exception to that. The trails here were designed for mountain bikers, and designed to be fun for mountain bikers. And riders of all ability levels and ages can and will enjoy themselves here.

Check out last year's 24 hour race at Great Glen.

Description

The ride start with a big climb, or drive to the top of a narrow winding mtn road (do-able by normal cars). Driving saves two miles of climbing, but you'll need to get back to the car somehow. Then a 1 mile technical single track climb, to a nice 2 mile single track downhill,and then, a 1.5 mile high speed dirt road downhill. There are great views on this ride and a cool place (Horsefeathers) to get a beer after riding.


Directions:
Take RT 16N thru North Conway, NH.
One mile north of the village, turn right on Hurricane Mtn rd. Drive, or ride to the top.
Turn right onto the Black cap trail (marked) 1 mile up to 1stright(Cranmore).
Beautiful single track to a dirt road down Cranmore ski area.
Do it again or ride to N.Conway!

White Mountains

White Mountains NEMBA (WM-NEMBA) represents the voice of mountain bikers in the Mount Washington Valley and beyond. We work with land managers on an ongoing basis to resolve conflicts and provide input on critical issues such as the National Forest Plan Revision and access to public lands over private property. We work to promote mountaing biking to the local community, and to educate mountain bikers about responsible riding. We perform regular trail maintenance, and partner closely with land managers to help preserve and expand our riding opportunities in the area.

We also host many group rides, have an ongoing Tuesday Night Trailwork series, and put on an annual Mountain Bike Weekend in North Conway and also in Gorham.  Come ride with us, and help us give back to the trails.
