Review: https://youtu.be/Bjwh_-jcJNY We biked the green circle loop trail at Bear Brook in October 2017. This park has a network of trails, but we chose to do the loop trail since it was fairly popular, and also seemed easy. The trails are well maintained, but it can be hard to determine which way to go at intersections. There isn't a colored marker to follow, so make sure you have some sort of directions on your phone. Overall the course was fun and not too challenging. There were parts where we definitely had to walk our bikes, either because it was too steep uphill or downhill. Any beginner/intermediate biker will have a blast on this trail! The beginning section has some fun but scary single track runs with a steep dropoff on one side. It also ends with some good downhill switchbacks that are a great way to end your ride.

Review: Amazing beautiful park. Great place to ride with lots of different single track trails. Only downside is the trail signs have no indication of what level of difficulty that trail is, so make sure you have a map with that info before you go. Other than that it's my favorite place I've ever biked!

Review: If you are from out of town. This is the trail to go check out. Bear Brook is a beast but make sure you have a map of the trail since it took me a while to navigate. Its marked but not very well marked.

Review: Returned to bear brook after 2 year hiatus.... Best network in NH! Miles of trails, lots of elevation, technical challenges, single track, dbl track, remote, great scenery, camping, swimming...everything you need. Definitely need a few days to experience it all. Bear brook trail to hemlock trail is my favorite

Review: Loved the park, it's huge.

Hands down, the best trails are the Hemlock and the Big Bear.

The Hemlock is very technical and there's a long stretch where there is a huge drop, so fall off your bike and you can end up in the hospital since you can pick up a lot of speed here.

The Big Bear trail is an awesome downhill trail. Gotta go up Pudunk Rd. and then make a right onto Little Bear and then a right on Big Bear. Best downhill in the park, hands down.

The Catamount trail is insane. The best way to go up the hill is to take the Catamount shortcut, but you will have to hike with the bike then reach the top with the huge boulders and you get a beautiful view of the Manchester/Hooksett/Allenstown area. Coming downhill is insane too, gotta lower the seat and use the back brake a lot!

Review: Little Bear Climb to Big Big Bear decent is the best 10 minutes in biking. Hemlock 1 is a thrill ride on the side of a hill. There is so much more to hit here but, these are my favorites. If you have the strength and stamina you can ride here all day.

Review: I just moved to Concord, NH from St. Louis and I absolutely love this place. Bear Brook has some real smooth and flowy single track. I only clicked intermediate bc there are a few technical areas, but for the most part it's grip and rip. The scenery is breath taking and the trails are jn excellent condition.
