Alt Names

Rockingham Recreational Trail, New Hampshire

Last Known StatusOpen

This easy, 12 mile long multiple use trail is open to ATVs during the summer months and snowmobiles during the winter months. There are two staging areas, one in Derry and the other in Fremont.

The trail is mostly flat and hard packed with light elevation changes. There is no single track or challenging terrain, making this a good choice for an relaxing day ride.
