Biking in the White Mountains

The area is full of great opportunities for biking. For the hard-core mountain bikers, Bretton Woods, Cranmore Resort and Loon Mountain offer downhill, lift-served mountain biking trails. In addition, Bretton Woods has an extensive network of biking trails of all levels in the beautiful setting of the Bretton Woods valley, on the site of the famed x-country ski trails. VisitĀ https://www.brettonwoods.com/Activities/adventure_center/mountain_biking_overviewĀ for more details. Bike rentals are available from the resort or Drummondā€™s Ski Shop.

On the other side of Mount Washington, theĀ Great Glen Outdoor CenterĀ also offers amazing biking path. Bike rentals are available there as well.

For a ā€œtamerā€ experience, check out the ā€œCross New Hampshire Adventure Trailā€ (XNAT), an 83 mile stretch of dirt roads, paved backroads, rail trails and bike paths across Northern New Hampshire, from the Vermont border in Woodsville to the Maine border in Gorham. Great for mountain bikers! Visit theĀ XNAT websiteĀ for a map. Another favorite area for biking is the Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge. The scenery is beautiful, and the 8 miles of trails are easy! VisitĀ https://www.friendsofpondicherry.org/bicyclingĀ for more information.

Finally, do not forget about theĀ biking trails in Franconia Notch; challenging, but stunning! You can bring your own bikes, of course, or rent one from Sport Thoma in Lincoln to get dropped off atĀ  the trail head!
