Plenty of single track, wide open tractor roads and some solid climbing… a place for everyone to ride which is why we chose SHP for our kickoff party!

The trails throughout the network vary in difficulty. There are wide open 'tractor' and old logging roads, to single track climbs and overall the park is not very technical.

There are three hills (Stratham, Jewell and Long) that can get the heart rate up and offer a sweet reward on the other side.

All rides start at 10:30am. All rides are no drop. Helmets and a bike in good working condition are required.

Family/kid ride-

Come enjoy 2-3 miles of mostly flat non technical ride with little to no roots. There is some gravel we will be riding over. There is a pump track that could be incorporated as well if there is interest. This will be a family social pace winding around the park.

 

Beginner ride-

6-8 miles of riding smooth dirt, roots and one longer climb up a hill on smooth terrain. The pace will be social with stops to make sure everyone has made it over any rooty sections. Walking your bike over anything you doin't feel comfortable with is recommended. All bikes are equipped with a hiker!

 

Intermediate ride-

8-10 miles of a faster pace ride over roots, rocks and climbs. Some level of fitness would be beneficial. Still a no drop ride and we wait for everyone at all intersections with some stops along the trail if needed to bring everyone back together.

Advanced ride-

10-12 miles of a fast pace, less stopping ride over rocky and rooty hills. Climbing all 3 hills in the park. No drop ride with stopping at all intersections; just riding faster on the trail.

Being a NEMBA member is not required to join a ride. If you haven't signed your waiver for the kickoff party yet, please do so here:
