Exploring wilderness trails on an ATV is a fun and exciting family activity, and with more than 1,000 miles of interconnected ATVing trails, there’s no better place to ride in New England than the North Country of New Hampshire and Vermont.
Home to the Ride the Wilds trail system – the largest ATV trail system in the Northeast – the North Country’s trails offer something for every kind of ATV rider, whether you’re a novice looking for a gentle ride or an experienced driver seeking challenging trails and rugged climbs. The trails are open each year from Memorial Day Weekend through the end of September. Bring your own, or go here for the best ATV rentals around.
With so many miles of trails in the North Country, visitors can ride for days without riding the same trails twice. The region’s trails weave through vast wilderness, providing ATV riders with breathtaking views of mountains, fields, forests and waterways.
From Colebrook to Pittsburg, the communities along the Ride the Wilds trail system allow ATVs to use many town roads to access services or connect to other trails, making it easy for riders to get fuel or something to eat. You can also take an ATV to out-of-the-way places for hunting, hiking and fishing.
If you don’t have your own ATV, don’t worry. Several local businesses offer ATV rentals, including Bear Rock Adventures and MOMS North Country Powersports.
Come experience the thrilling adventure that is ATV riding in the North Country.
