The Veterans Memorial Recreation Area and Great Gains Forest are town managed recreation area.

In winter there's all manner of snow realted activities while in spring, summer and fall the trails are the big attraction.

eMTBs are allowed on these trails.

The trails are fun and quite close to the center of town.

In all there are about 5 miles of trails.

But more are on the way ddue to a NEMBA Signature Trail Grant.

Here's a Facebook description of the project.,


Beyond stoked to break ground on the first machine built flow trail at Great Gains! This project has been three years in the making, working with the City of Franklin, Conservation Committee and New England Mountain Bike Association. @nemba_mtb

Thanks to our talented Central NH Chapter and @powderhorntrailco we were able to utilize grant money and donated funds to build quite possibly the first mechanized built trail supported by NEMBA in New England.
