Hopkinton-Everett Trail System

Wednesday, August 08, 2018

Alt Names

Stark Pond, Stark Brook, Bob Thomas Trail, River Loop, Bassett Mill Loop, Sugar Hill Loop

Last Known StatusOpen

Located near Everett Lake, this large area offers around 26 miles of narrow ATV trails and miles of single track loops and roughly 30 miles of snowmobile trails (closed to ATVs and dirt bikes). The trails are regularly maintained and have moderate elevation changes with some pretty cool bridge crossings and pleasant views of Everett Lake.

There is no fee to ride but machines must display a current NH OHRV Sticker. The main staging area offers plenty of spacious parking and can accommodate large vehicles.

The trails are open daily from dawn to dusk but may close on short notice due to flood control operations and during mud season.
