Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail

The Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail is an 83-mile scenic bike route that traverses the northern White Mountains region of New Hampshire. Born as a labor of love and many hours of volunteering and research, the trail links together rail trail, dirt roads, bike paths and backroads, taking riders through some of the most stunning areas of the White Mountains and beyond. The section that travels through Gorham, NH is toward the eastern terminus of the trail, which makes it a great place to either begin or end your adventure. Do the ride in a day or plan a multi-day journey staying at one of the many accommodation offerings in Gorham or elsewhere. Either way, be sure to check out the online Story Map for detailed directions and all the hidden (and not-so-hidden) gems of this excellent adventure.
