Explore the most popular Off Road Driving trails in New Hampshire with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Nice loop very icy in 2nd half during winter. I think it will be impassable during mud season, too wet.

A super great trail for all skill levels. The trail is relatively well marked, and includes a waterfall, a river, and a view of Pack Monadnock Mountain!

Granite State Rail Trail is a super easy rail trail, with parking super close to the Miilford Oval. While the trail crosses some roads, it's super peaceful and serene. A good getaway from the bustling town life!

This trail is a blast but I highly recommend going with another vehicle and have a lift kit installed first. The off-roading trail starts in Troy off of Prospect Street, all other entrances are for hiking and small vehicles like quads and dirt bikes only... you won’t be able to get in... I tried and failed. It’s a blast and if anyone wants to go hit me up.

Great local trail with easy access, convenient parking and polite riders.

Best running trail around, footing is good trails are easy and the views are great! Start anywhere and go out and back. Or get dropped off and picked up when going point to point.

Did this trail Labor Day morning. Got to the trailhead at 9am and there were no other cars in the parking lot! Mosquitos were pretty bad on the bottom 1/2 so highly recommend bug spray. Very nice short hike - no views from the summit, but at the intersection near the top take the right - .1 mile to open ledges with lovely views.

It's not bad. Just wish there wasn't so much horse droppings everywhere in the deeper parts of it.

I went yesterday when it was still in the high 90s. beautiful day and great views (not from the summit) but in the north meadows.i didn't expect rain till the following day but when we started heading down we heard thunder above our heads and it started to rain before we got off the trail. wasn't terrible cause it was so hot, but it proves to always be prepared when hiking on any mountain, no matter the size.

We had planned to drive up the road to the Sawyer Pond Trail, but road was closed at the turn off from the highway.

From the parking lot you can hike on a trail down by the river for about a mile before you hit a clearing and an abandoned road grade up to the main road. We tried to continue along the river from that point, but the trail disappears soon after. We had to scramble up a steep hill to get back to the road again.

The road is suitable for backpacking, biking, even a stroller. It isn’t too steep and is a fairly consistent uphill grade.

We fished the river and creeks without much success. A few 3-5inch brook trout were all we could get to bite.

The trail was VERY BUSY on Saturday and the parking lot was packed when we hiked out.

Awesome rd with some killer views of river down steep hills. The road is closed to vehicles since the washout last year. About halfway down theres a pull off walk dont the hill and a sweet spot to swim

Loved this trail. Started by Kohl’s. Minor incline that was barely noticeable for the most part. Others using the trail were pleasant and polite. Trail did have a bit of litter though when you get further out. Overall a great trail! Watch out for horse poop!

Moderate ascent, the views aren’t great.

we had a blast hiking this trail. I just wish there were more signs about the trail and where your are... maybe a kiosk at the end would have been great... all in all we plan on hiking it again.

Massages if to Chester Turnpike - going farther each trip. Some section surfaces a rocky for my hybrid bike tires. So spending much time with my eyes down on the road.

Love this park! Very shady on the ground trail.

New to mountain biking, but a friend showed me around. Pretty easy main trail, unpaved. Lots of options for fire roads and single tracks all over. Always a fun ride though! Lots of nice people on the trail with dogs, kids, etc...

Easily accessible and ample parking at the trail head. Really great established trail for extended walks or bike rides. Can be buggy in the warmer months so be sure to pack bug spray.

Great little trail for families and beginner hikers, is rugged in places , roots and rocks , beautiful view at the top , I've taken a few first timers there to get the feel of a mountain hike . Most enjoyed it very much. Come in mid July to see the rhododendrums in full bloom. The largest patch in New England , the scenery is beautiful. You'll swear your in a jungle , not New Hampshire

My favorite place to hike with my puppy! The view at the top is so pretty. I do this hike a couple of times a week.

The trail is a smooth nice trail. The only upsets are the the deer flys they were thick and bug spray didn't help. My major concern was when I got to the town of Raymond it was so trashy, the buildings you pass while on the trail were sprayed painted and the trash was mostly beer cans. I almost felt like it was a seen out of the movie Boys In The Hood. Defiantly should be like this in the beautiful State of New Hampshire. What a disgrace the town of Raymond should take more pride.

Awesome guide Kevin.
