Rockingham Recreational Trail
Location: Near Route 107 and 111A, Windham, NH
This is one of the most popular New Hampshire off-road trails, especially for families and novice and beginning riders. All riders will likely appreciate the flat and even trails over beautiful wet marshlands and a quiet forest trail system, through a couple of tunnels.

Mostly hard pack trails with some mud when the weather cooperates. This trail also provides easy access to other NH ATV trails including Sullivan County, Bound Tree, Contoocock and Hopkinton Everett.
Ride the Wilds Trail System
Location: Coös County, NH, the most northern county in the state
Hands down some of the best ATV trail riding New Hampshire has to offer can be found as part of the more than 1,000 miles of interconnected ATV trails known as the Ride the Wilds trail system across Coos County, New Hampshire. It’s the largest ATV riding system in the northeast, and offers something for every level of rider, from gentle, meandering rides to rugged, adrenaline-spiking climbs. The trails weave through the vast wilderness of the North Country, passing the rugged landscape of the Great North Woods with its towering evergreens, through meadows, past crystal lakes and streams, and over tall mountains, all while providing ATV and UTV riding that is among the best in the nation. To accommodate riders, towns like Berlin, Gorham, Milan, Errol, Millsfield and Dixville within the Ride the Wilds trail system allow ATVs on town roads to access services like food, gas and lodging, or to connect with other sections of trail.
Warren ATV Trail
Location: Route 25, Warren, NH
Possibly the only ATV and UTV trail riding that begins with an actual NASA Rocket…the 70-foot-high Redstone Missile which was delivered in 1971 to inspire local youth about the space program…this area offers you 4 miles of trail riding beginning in Warren, NH. It’s not the longest trail you’ve ever ridden, but it may very well be among the most scenic, crossing Black Brook, running alongside the road, passing Oliverian Pond, and then veering back into the forest. The terrain is mostly hard pack and gravel, though some segments are rocky, and you may encounter mud. The trail eventually connects to Mount Moosilauke ATV Club trails.
