SE201306 - Ride the Wilds

Ride the Wilds, Coos County!

Jump on your rig this summer and ride!

The Ride the Wilds trail system across Coos County is the largest ATV/OHRV trail system in the Northeast and it delivers a riding experience like none other. 

Hop on at any point to access more than 1,000 miles of interconnected trails, all without trailering your rig from one location to another.
The trail system spans the county, from Berlin, Gorham, Milan and Errol on the eastern side, through Millsfield and Dixville in the middle, to the Connecticut River towns of Pittsburg, Stewartstown, Colebrook, Stratford, Groveton and Lancaster on the west. 

The 2015 season opens on Saturday, May 23 (depending on trail conditions).

The connectivity of the trails allows riders to head out for a day or more, with opportunities to stop and stay along the way. To accommodate riders, all the towns within the Ride the Wilds trail system allow ATVs on certain town roads to access restaurants, gas stations, local shops and lodging, or to connect with other sections of trail. Look for ATV Permitted Signs on open sections of highway.

Included in the trail system are the 8,000-acre Perry Stream Land and Timber Company holding in Pittsburg, the 7,500-acre Jericho Mountain State Park in Berlin, and more than 120 miles of trails across 30,000 acres in Stratford.

You still have a couple more weeks to purchase your ticket to win a 2015 Polaris Sportsman 570 4x4 donated by HK Powersports. All raffle proceeds go directly to Ride the Wilds for trail improvements. Tickets cost just $15 each or 5 for $50. The winning ticket will be drawn on May 23.  http://www.nhgrand.com/ride-the-wilds/raffle2015.aspx
