SNH NEMBA -Bear Brook Trail Care CANCELED

Date

4/26/14 9:00am

trail event is cancelled while State reviews all trail usage
we will be hosting a intermediate ride instead at the toll booth parking lot 9am

We will be working on clearing the trails that were damaged by the most recent logging over the winter. Meet at 8:45 at the toll booth on Deerfield Road. We will be working at the bottom of Sentinel Pine. If we have enough people and time, we will then head over to clean up Hemlock. If you have a chainsaw and feel comfortable using it, please bring it along. Otherwise I'll plan on having the tool trailer at the site with all the tools we will need. I think it will still be too wet to ride at that point, so it's just a work day this time. Any questions, call Kathy 603-724-7187. Pass this along to anyone that might be interested. Hope to see you there! Read more about SNH NEMBA -Bear Brook Trail Care CANCELED

SNH NEMBA - Frosty Faturday Novice Ride

Event Date

12/21/19 9:00am to 10:30am

Did you get a brand new fatty and might be a little nervous riding in the snow for the first time? Or maybe you feel like a good old fashioned Saturday Slowcial? Join us! I know this is kinda last minute, so I'll try to host a few more of these over the winter. Time and location may vary.

Info for this week's ride:

We will be meeting at the parking lot at the end of Coliseum Ave. (Off Rt 3, Exit 6 - this is the street that runs behind the Kohl's Shopping Plaza). Be on the lookout for a blue Ford Explorer SUV as we'll meet there for a pre-ride discussion. There are only three things required for this novice ride: a fatbike that is capable of riding on hard packed dirt, snow and ice, a helmet (no exceptions) and a desire to have a great time! Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Time: 9am ET
Location: Mine Falls Park, 199 Coliseum Ave., Nashua

Description

Kingman Farm is a property of the University of New Hampshire in Durham. It's fun place to ride. In its 335 acres there are enough easy doubletracks and woods roads to keep a beginner happy, while at the same time there are a few hills and some really fun singletracks to keep more advanced riders huffing and puffing. There are many more difficult places to ride than Kingman Farm, but few that are more fun.

The University of New Hampshire Mountain Bike Team trains here. And someone, maybe them, has done a lot of trail work. One of the many hilly singletracks that you'll encounter has been bermed, shelved and switchbacked in a highly professional manner to prevent water from eroding the trail.

My guess is that when the mountain bike team is training that they do multiple laps up this hill. Twice is usually enough for me.

Expect to spend a couple of hours exploring here. And then expect to come back. Kingman farm is far too much fun to only ride once.

All levels of riders can enjoy most of the farm's trails. None require any advanced skills or a high degree of fitness. Better riders of course will cover ground faster. But unless they're fixated on riding challenging terrain, even very good riders will have a lot of fun here.

Recently the UNH Office of Woodlands has been working with the Madbury Conservation Commission and the Southern NH chapter of NEMBA to close and rehabilitate unauthorized trails. These efforts have been pretty successful and if you see a sign telling you that a trail is being rehabilitated, stay off it.

There is a new trail map available. Copies of it can be found at the Madbury Town Hall and the Town Library or printed from this webpage..

Directions: To Trailhead Parking Area.
From the intersection of route 4 and route 108 head south into Durham. When you get to the center turn right on Madbury Road. Go about a mile and a half and turn left when you get to Route 155 and then take your first right on Town Hall Road. Just after the Library you'll see the Town Hall and there's a  trailhead behind it. The old parking lot on Route 155 has been closed because of high speed traffic on 155.

Map of the Trailhead Parking Area.

Cautions:

The area immediately surrounding the farm buildings is closed to bikes. You may encounter kids and unleashed dogs. And they are very curious. Also, yield to equestrians when you see them.
