Great trail if you start by a trail head. Very little litter and some police presence. Many parts become softer sand and a few of the people using off road equipment are respectful. I have recently been using the Northern Rail Trail due to them not allowing off-road vehicles. Last time I used this trail dirt bikers thought it was fun to do wheelies and kick up dust everywhere.

great trail. loved that there different trail heads. made it easier to walk the whole trail. it took a few times but we did it in sections . great to see that there a place to go at the one end. I mean, eats off the trail. we didn't check that part out. I would hope there a dinner or something to go to.

was much better years ago before they cut down all the trees. I liked the forest look and feel much better. more of a nature walk.

nice for kids watch out for mud dweeling wasps on the trail not foot for low to the ground dogs but the main road is great.

This is an easy, quick family friendly hike. If you follow the snowmobile trail around the the left of the mountain and then stay to the inside it will lead you to the top where a flag pole sits. You can cut across and make it up as long as you go in that inward direction. I did this with my two young children who didn't have any problems with it. If you're looking for a little bit more of a challenge go straight up.

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!

the MTV trails are gnarly, several miles of single track and also a jump path with lots of switchbacks

long auto road to a vista type area with a marginal view, however there are several woods trails to the right of the auto road but there is not much to see as they have been select cutting many trees. it's a good place to break a sweat if you're a runner.

this is a great public place to take your kids for small hikes skiing or snowboarding and during January to March they have a tubing area for kids as well. despite volunteer staffing the facility is in very good order in the trails are very well maintained. the summit features a flagpole and very rocky area to sit in take in views. some of the trails tie into the local snowmobiling trail system.

This branch of the Sugar runs along the famous and historical Blue Mountain Forest Hunting Preserve, known by locals as Corbin Park. Very scenic area with a rich history.
