RIDE NE W HAMPSHIRE
New Hampshire doesn’t exactly sound
like the off-road capital of the world, but
it is trying to be a much bigger player.
The Androscoggin Valley Chamber of
Commerce in New Berlin was host to three
major off-road destination events in 2016.
The first was the Redneck ATV Poker Run,
next was the Jericho ATV and UTV Festival,
and finally Camp RZR East.
New Berlin is friendly to UTVs and ATVs,
and during events there is some access
to town roads. For some events UTVs and
ATVs can drive right into downtown. There
are a variety of trail experiences available in
Jericho Mountain State Park, but the park
is connected to the Ride the Wilds trail system that has over 1000 miles of trails! If you
are interested in seeing this amazing riding
area, check out www.androscogginvalley

ridethewilds.nhgrand.com. These trails offer
three-season riding, and the photos from
fall with the trees turning look incredible.
