The Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail:
The Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail is an 83-mile scenic bicycle route that spans from Woodsville, NH to Bethel, ME. It is comprised of existing rail trails, recreation paths, dirt roads and paved roads. Each segment can be enjoyed by local cyclists and families as short excursions or day trips. And it can be combined into a 1-to-3-day bike tour that follows the Ammonoosuc River through Bath, Lisbon and Littleton, through the Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge and along the northern flanks of the Presidential Mountains through Whitefield, Jefferson, Randolph and Gorham and then follows the Androscoggin River to Bethel. The Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail website has a detailed description of the route, maps, food and lodging along the trail – www.CrossNewHampshire.org
