Franconia Area

Franconia Area

Franconia Area NEMBA was founded in 2015 to help steward, promote and improve the extensive network of trails in the region north and west of Franconia Notch. The Ammonoosuc Valley extending from Bretton Woods to the Connecticut River offers extensive riding opportunities in close proximity with terrain gentle along the continuous valleys but also challenging mountain slopes and stunning vistas always present along the way.

The Profile Trails Network includes the trails in the Franconia Easton Sugar Hill region with connections planned to neighboring towns, notably Bethlehem and Littleton. These trails radiate from Franconia Village center with restrooms at the behind the chamber of commerce at Town Hall. The center of the network is at Dow park and Fox Hill and our member volunteers also support emerging MTB networks in Littleton and Bethlehem. Franconia Village is at the base of Cannon Mountain and Franconia Notch State Park and the White Mountain National Forest. The Cooley Jericho Community Forest owned and maintained by Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust is located at the junction of Easton, Landaff and Sugar Hill and includes a newly built trail system including a purpose built single track that connects Trumpet Round Road in Sugar Hill to Route 116 in South Easton by Connection to the NFS Jericho Road Trail and several hike bike multi-use trails.

Lift served downhill riding can be found at Bretton Woods and also just south of Franconia Notch at Loon Mountain

The Profile Trails cover private as well as public lands, is maintained by volunteers and is shared with community users in all seasons. We depend on the generosity and goodwill of private landowners to preserve the integrity of the network, and ask that all trail users be respectful of land owners, fellow trail users, and the trails themselves.
