Great North Woods is perfectly suited for ATV riding, with plenty of trails

All terrain vehicle (ATV) and Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle (OHRV) riding is an increasingly popular trail use in New Hampshire. Through the cooperative efforts of landowners, volunteer organizations, and the state, roughly 700 miles of trails are open for summertime ATV and trail bike riding. Some trail systems have restrictions on the type of ATVs and OHRVs that are permitted, so always check with the local volunteer club or the Bureau of Trails first.

ATV and OHRV Clubs
Volunteer clubs help to maintain trail conditions and environmental impact. ATV clubs are the way to get more legal riding areas available for wheeled recreation. The clubs are a valuable asset to the ATV and OHRV community and their volunteers are invaluable for getting landowner permission and performing trail work.
