Hiking Biking and Kayaking

The Mahoosucs ramble from the Androscoggin River in northeast New Hampshire to the

southwest edge of Maine. The length of the range is traversed by the 31-mile Mahoosuc Trail, a segment of the Appalachian Trail (AT). Its loftiest point is an unimpressive 4,180 feet, but hike the trail from west to east and you’ll climb close to 10,000 feet (total) over 10 peaks. Despite those impressive statistics, only one aspect of the Mahoosuc Range has earned it real notoriety, especially among AT thru-hikers. Somewhere along the way, someone dubbed the mile-long ravine known as Mahoosuc Notch “the hardest mile on the AT,” and many thru-hikers anticipate its challenges all the way from Georgia.

The Sunday River Mountain Bike Park is a downhill playground boasting 30 trails of lift serviced terrain that stretch out over 20 miles.

Beginner riders will find dirt work roads and lower-angle ski trails, while intermediates can choose between moderate single track options, slick rock and even jump lines and flow trails. Options in the park really open up for advanced riders with plenty of technical single track, steep downhill trails and manufactured terrain. Over the last few years the park crew has been hard at work adding new trails and creating machine-built terrain including jumps, berms and flow trails, log and bridge work, and more. Check out the footage and photos here for a taste of what the park has to offer. If you haven’t visited Sunday River for a few years, now’s the time to come back and find out what you’ve been missing.

Just above the Errol Dam in New Hampshire, there is a vast, easily accessible lake and river area that encompasses the the Magalloway River and Umbagog Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Northern Waters can rent you canoes or touring kayaks for trips in this beautiful wilderness area. One of the outstanding features is that true wilderness access is easy, and canoeing trips are easily negotiated.
