Northern New Hampshire’s Ride the Wilds trail network—1,000-plus miles of interconnected OHRV trails— has opened for the season. One of the largest OHRV trail networks in the country, spanning the entirety of New Hampshire’s Coos County, Ride the Wilds is America’s premier destination for experienced OHRV enthusiasts and those wishing to learn in the eastern United States. Stephen Clorite, President of the North Country OHRV Coalition, the organization that facilitates the Ride the Wilds initiative, said “Beyond the sheer size and breathtaking scenery, what makes this trail network a national destination for OHRV riders is that it affords easy and convenient access to restaurants, local shops, gas stations and other northern New Hampshire destinations by allowing riders to drive on many local roads.” The new Ride the Wilds website, RideTheWilds.org, which launched earlier this year, offers information on the trail system itself. “With Ride the Wilds, the options are endless and that is what makes this trail network so special,” said Karl Stone, Marketing Manager for New Hampshire Grand, the official visitor information source for the Great North Woods and the Northern White Mountains. The Ride the Wilds trail network was developed by 11 non-profit OHRV clubs, which perform all maintenance for this economic initiative—with no tax dollars. There is no fee for utilizing the Ride the Wilds trail system. Visit here for a complete list of trail openings. Ride the Wilds is not just for those who own OHRVs. Several businesses along the Ride the Wilds trail network offer OHRV rentals, all necessary safety equipment, and guided tours, including Bear Rock Adventures in Pittsburg, and White Mt. ATV in Gorham.
