Bikers of all ages and abilities will enjoy the terrain around pristine Purity Lake
Bring your mountain bike to the Purity Spring Resort: You won’t be disappointed! Bikers of all levels will appreciate the wide path over a Nordic trail network. The dirt and paved terrain is perfect for beginners and more advanced riders. Beginners will be happy with no major drops or jumps; more advanced riders will enjoy some of the single-track stretches. Both will appreciate the beauty of biking along pristine Purity Lake. And you don’t have to give up biking in the ski season: The King Pine Ski Area offers fat biking, a great winter workout. After your biking adventures, head back to the resort to take a dip in the indoor pool, relax in the hot tub or enjoy a meal at Traditions Restaurant or the Pine Cone Cafe.
This trail parallels the Winnipesaukee River and passes the historic Sulphite upside down covered bridge believed to be the only one in the country and listed on the national register of historic places. You will also view mill ruins and remaining portions of dams that tell the history of the 5 mills that operated on this river in the mid 19th century. The trail runs from the historic rail road trestle in Franklin to the Surrett Battery property just off Park Street in Northfield. In that area you can also view the collection of antique rail cars and cabooses that operate on the local scenic railway.
