Hogan Road

As part of the Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail route, Hogan Road presents a scenic, wooded, easy-access and relatively gentle exploration opportunity for gravel biking, walking, xc skiing, and other lower-impact activities. Hogan Road is a dirt road with some rough patches and not suitable for a road bike with skinny tires. Some people choose to walk / bike pieces of Hogan Road.

ACCESS: Running directly along the Androscoggin River, Hogan Road can be accessed from North Rd. in Shelburne (preferred), or the trestle bridge near the junction of Route 16 and Route 2 in Gorham.
