Tower Hill Pond - TRAIL

Tower Hill Pond - Trail, Auburn, Hampshire

This is also the location of the Watershed Wahoo Race held in mid-May. Lots of very challenging doubletrack and some singletrack. Most is fast riding and some nice climbs and descents. Nice ride for hot summer days, because the pond keeps the air cooler in this valley. There's about 10 miles of trails in this area if you ride them all. Near by is the famous FOMBA singletrack that can be accessed by going down Tower Hill Road and crossing the pavement to the doubletrack trail that will take you around Clark Pond to Depot Road or the Rock Trail that will take you to the boardyard near the feild.

Overall its a good ride. No flat land here its all up or down. Lots of loose gravel surfaces. Nice place to ride on hot summer days, because the air is usually cooler around this deep pond with lots of Oak trees to provide shade. There are also many good places to stop and chill out along the shore. The trails are not incredibly technical but offer challenges of steep hill climbing.

From Tower Hill Road take first trailhead on the left, the trail goes up and then there's a nice'n gnarly downhill drop. Follow this trail up to the dam and the fireroad makes a loop around the pond. There are numerous side trails on the out side of the loop that offer much more challanging riding. On the north end of the pond you will find the snowmobile trail (rt. 15)that will take you into Bear Brook State Park if your overly ambitious.

Nice fast double track.I did a slow ride with my wife
and found some short single track that leads to the edge of the pond for some nice views.At one end of the pond is a dam which is another nice stopping point.The trails we rode on were nice,well maintained double track.I saw some side shoot single track a few times
but did not persue them.Maybe next time.A nice ride out
in the woods with enough hills to keep in interesting as well as how the trail comes right down the edge of the pond for a good distance.Nice layout.

There is something for everybody, just not a lot of it.

A REALLY nice, almost perfect, place to bring the family.

This is my 7 year old daughters favorite place to ride, and it is not too rough for littest one in the Burley trailer.

The main loop is hard-pack double-track and you can really fly. if you are into flat-out speed or "just riding along", and not so much into tight & twisty sigletrack, then this is the place for you.

There are a few more technical off-shoots to keep the ground-pounders happy, but please remember this is protected watershed land for the city of Manchester, so exercise some discression during mud season.

Just ride it!
