    Bear Brook State Forrest.
    Big cross country semi non technical ripper miles that pile up fast.

    bad news
    The fact that I ride Fort Rock as often as I do and I'm not totally worn out on it probably says something.

    Bear Brook just because it so damn close to my house (4 miles away).
    Take travel out of the equation and Franklin Falls Dam wins.

    I love the Pinnacle in Newport.

    I'd have to say, depends on my mood and also... I haven't ridden everywhere yet!

    Pinnacle is probably my new favorite, even with all the leaves and not being able to see the trail, I can just imagine how much better it is without the leaves.

    Fort rock is great when I'm in the mood for lots of drops

    bear brook is good when I wanna ride some good fast single track with elevation and keep my tires on the ground, as there's not much to air out on there. (good potential though)

    And drummer hill is great for some shuttle runs

    haha I like alot of the riding we have here in NH. though, I have to say once I try north conway in the spring, from everything I've watched and heard, it'll probably be #1...

    It just got leaf-blown last week, but now it's all covered in snow. We'll start the Wednesday night snowshoeing up there soon.

    Who has ride-able trails right now? Too much snow here, above the Notches.

    Me too. Conditions Saturday were near perfect. That place packs more features per mile than most. Awesome.

    I live only a mile from the top of podunk road in Candia.

    Usually ride Bear Brook a lot, but now that they tore down pitch pine trail i haven't been there in some days.

    We should get a ride in before the season comes to a close, jonny.

    The fact that I can ride out of my house and hit the hospital trails, the quarries, or wind my way into Bow is pretty nice. But like someone else said if you include places to travel to then it is a toss up right now between Bear Brook and Franklin Falls. Franklin Falls is fun and every trail is good, but Bear Brook just has a larger area to play in with more options/miles.

    Sounds like we live dam close to each other. It was fun smack talking with you but i would rather ride. So if you don't mind that you will have to wait for me, Let's ride sometime! I'll bring brown ale. I live five maybe ten minute ride from Concord hospital -definitely one of my favorites!

    Sadly i was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in October and so i've hung up the bike
    for the season while i go through chemo therapy. I won't see a trail until next spring =/.
    I am riding my commuter bike on my trainer to try and stay some what in shape.
    And i have a good prognosis 80 to 90 % cure rate. So all in all i'm in great spirits.:thumbsup:

    Best of luck to you, JonnyB76. It sure seems like you have a great attitude, which will go along way toward getting healthy. Keep it up!

    I don't think I can pick a single favorite NH riding spot because I like different ones for different reasons, the variety being one of the things that makes NH a great place to ride.

    My vote goes to Pinacle (Newport.) I like the variety, and the climbing.
