    Overnight bike-packing

    Looking for some bike-packing spots in NH I am planning with my 15 year old in either late Sept or early October this year. Looking for some rideable trails or logging roads off the Kanc where we can pitch a small 2 man tent and set up camp off the trail near water. I know its prohibited (bikes that is) on most hiking trails off the Kanc, but was hoping to find something less traveled and maybe more hidden - if that even exists? Coming up from Dover, NH and just wanted to do a simple overnight bike-pack and be able to park within 5-10 miles of the site. Plz let me know if you know of any hidden jems like this....I know wishful thinking.

    Completely out of left field but you may want to check out carrabassett valley area in Maine. Not sure how far it is from you but there’s really good riding there.
    Id like to hear some info about NH too.

    I'm no expert, but to start out you may want to research Tripoli Road as an option. Another would be a combo of Rob Brook Trail, Sawyer Pond, Sawyer River Road, and trails in that area.

    Sawyer Pond has a few shelters that would make a good destination from Bear Notch and Rob Brook Road. All of the trails in the area can be ridden but you'll probably encounter a section or 2 of hike a bike due to wet or steep areas. Starting farther down stream and riding the Lower Nan from the Covered Bridge to Sawyer Pond would make a good ride also.
