Sugar River Trail is a 20 mile out and back trail located near Claremont, NH. The trail is primarily used for mountain biking and is accessible from June until November.
it is a nice trail. enjoyed it. it was hard to walk because of 4 wheelers. actually thought the trail was for all. there was a group of kids flying up and down. glad no one was in horseback, the horses woukd have freaked out for sure. ducks in the river. saw remains from a bridge. what is history of the rr? remains if bridge we saw, history of what that was? Map shows not even an old road going to it
We rarely have time to ride the tandem my husband built, and from some reviews about sandy soil, we were not sure. BUT it was great, a perfect Sunday late summer day with sunshine & no humidity. Started in Claremont; glad we did as trip back from Newport was slightly "downhill". ATV users were courteous & friendly as were dog walkers. Would like to snowshoe this scenic river trail if we have snow this winter. Good maintenance of entire trail. Thanks!
Definitely used more for ATV's and biking. We live alongside the beginning of the trail in Newport. It is 10 miles from the start of the Newport Rec to just before Home Depot in Claremont. You won't get a big swear hiking it but snowshoeing, biking or running will do the trick!
Easy nature walking trail
