July 2012 - totally worth a visit. Especially the Woronoco loop at the south end (designed by bikers). Bring some bug spray, (although they weren't really that bad.)
We happened to have a folding saw and cleared a downed tree. Some fun technical sections, fun jumps and honking downhills. We'll be back.

Great place to ride, has a little bit of everything. Stuff you won't be able to ride up and stuff you'll think twice about riding down. Really one of the more underated areas in NH. Mostly because some of the best stuff there is just flat out hard, but there is also plenty of
challenging fun riding to be had in the park. A must hit location for NH, too much good stuff to not to check out.

The new (not sure exactly how new) single track that runs from the start of Mountain Trail to Fundy Trail, roughly parallel to Mountain Road is pretty tasty. Thanks, whoever helped make that.

These trails are not for the squemish. There is a lot of climbing to do. There is also a lot of downhills. The trails are fast and wild. A real joy to ride. They can all be done in about 3-4 hrs of riding by experienced riders knowing the way. This makes for a great Sunday morning ride.

Customer Service

The easiest way to get there is to follow the signage to Pawtuckaway State Park. Find a space to park and go for a killer ride. It can be reached off of route 156 in Raymond, NH

If you can handle the gruesome climbs, then you get a great view from the tower. Extremely rocky and technical singletrack can be very steep at times. Watch out for hikers and birdwatchers on the descent, however.

There are some very nice, scenic trails here but they can get crowded with pedestrians on sunny summer weekends. If you want something a tad more advanced youll find plenty of that. Pawtuckaway has some of the most technically demanding and physically grueling climbs and drops I have ever ridden in the area. Couple that with the picturesque surroundings and mountain top views make for a very rewarding day of riding. All trails are well marked, maintained and mapped.

The only downside, Pawtuckaway is the most bug infested area I have ever ridden (even early and late in the season). Bring extra bug spray!

I wouldnt recommend most of Pawtuckaways trails to the true beginner rider but its a great spot to hone your technical skills and endurance even if youve been riding for years.

Customer Service

Take Mountain trails (Shaw, Mountain, Devils Den) if youve got the courage. There are easier trails too if your not in the mood for epic technical accents.

Fast Fire roads and lots of very technical so called hiking trails(a bike just makes them all that much better) and some twisting singletrack

Customer Service

Take Fundy Trail untill it meets up with Shaw Trail, Go south Ridge Trail going south to South Mountain,(Going up is nearly unridable but what is on the other side makes it all worth while) take lunch break on the top at the fire towerthen make the decent down the other sideand come out on Mountain Trail Next to mountain Pond.

The riding is great. Long climbs and long descents, Excellent. If you tend to dump a lot wear some armour because the rocks will eat you up on some trails. Great scenery nice wooded area. I came down for a weekend family reunion and had a blast for a full afternoon on the trails, I almost had to skip the family thing.
