Pemigewasset Valley Trails, Plymouth
Welcome to Plymouth – the gateway to the outdoor recreation in the western White Mountains of New Hampshire and the Lakes Region, you are a short trip away from world class hiking, skiing, biking, climbing and water sports.
Pemi Valley NEMBA has partnered with the Town of Plymouth, the Holderness Conservation Commission and the Oxbow Initiative to create great mountain biking opportunities with riding distance of downtown. For a more detailed map go to the Fox Park and Gyroscope Trail links on the Pemi Valley NEMBA Page.
The Trails: Fox Park’s singletrack trails are designed with intermediate riders in mind. These trails feature a great mix of flow and technical riding. You will encounter roots, rocks and steep terrain on these trails. For walkers, the doubletrack trails are most suitable.
Parking: the town of Plymouth has a large parking lot on Prince Haven Drive, off of Langdon Street. There is an informational kiosk and port-a-potty.
The Trails: The Pemigewasset Riverside Park, on the Holderness side of the river, has long been known to mountain bikers as the “Gyroscope Trails”, or “Gyro”. The trail network is unique in New Hampshire for its absence of rocks – making it a true beginner network. The winding and twisted single track is a great place to develop your turning skills.
Jump Area: The jump area contains advanced and expert features. Please use caution.
Getting There: Please park at Fox Park or the Plymouth Pump Track and ride across the river to get to Gyro. Railroad Square and Green Street provide a safe, low-traffic around Main Street, for bikers to get from the Pump Track to the bridge.
The Track: The pump track is a great place for beginners to develop their skills. There is a starting ramp and a figure-eight track of rollers and berms that winds its way through the old concrete supports, which also serve as a public graffiti canvas.
