Description

Ahern State Park is a 128-acre state protected area in Laconia on Lake Winnisquam in New Hampshire's Lakes Region.

It is open year-round and offers hiking, non-motorized boating, biking, and fishing.

It features 3,500 feet of lake shoreline. 

There's lots of singletrack. No major climbs, some flowy trails but mostly technical.

Many interesting features, lakeside views and challenging rock drops and short technical climbs.

In the summer bring your bathing suit as this is right off the water

Depending on the loop you take ride is anywhere from 5 to 7 miles to do it all.

FYI there are more trails to the South than the onsite state map shows.

Parking: NH 106 in Laconia to Right Way Path, then onto Ahern Park Rd.

Parking lot is down on either side of the road past the first gate.

Main trail head is on the left, a small technical singletrack loop is on the right. Read more about [node:title]

Description

With 7+ miles of trails on 470 acres Spaulding Woods in Northfield New Hampshore is a great place to go for a training ride.

Many of the trails are fine for beginners. Most are quite manageable. While some a quite challenging.

The best description of the area comes from the Trailforks Page.

Awesome lesser-known network of singletrack and doubletrack with mild elevation and some features including berms.

A great place to rip a cross-country or all mountain bike around if you are in the area.

Built and maintained by NEMBA and the Spaulding Youth Center.

Parking found at the boat launch, trailhead is at edge of woods at the field.

Check out this article.  https://www.spauldingservices.org/spaulding-woods-opens-seven-miles-new-...

You'll enjoy Spaulding Woods. 

One caution, the trails are best when dry.
