Trail Description
About this trail
These are a series of 11 individual singletracks built by FOMBA (Friend of Massabesic Biking Association). Some technical stuff and a few small hills, but they are superb, classy, fast and extremely fun. Some of the best singletracks in the state!!!

Review: Extremely windy New England singletrack. A lesson in how to fit 10 miles of trail into 40 acres

Review: Fomba trails are good fun. Some are more technical (Fire Line, Long Trail) than others. All the trails are very twisty and turny. They maximize the space they use but because of this, most of the trails lack good flow. In most cases, as soon as you get up a good pace, there is a hairpin turn to shut your speed down. Some might find this enjoyable. I do not. The best trail is the Woodpecker. It is smooth and generally pretty fast and flowy. I ride woodpecker to hemlock, then I turn around and ride them in reverse. Not a long ride, but the most fun. Red Pine and Sampler are the easiest for an introduction to singletrack riding. Moose Track, Fisher Cat and Deer Run are more technical, but easier than Fire Line or Long Trail.

Review: Had fun on the short trails off of the state snowmobile trails. They varied in length from 1.1 miles down to 1/5 of a mile. Lots and lots of roots and rocks. These trails are very curvy, which kept me awake and focused but it also meant that I never got any speed going. (I am not normally a speed demon by any means.) Trails are well maintained and very well marked. Thanks FOMBA, for a fun afternoon! I will definitely be going back soon.

Review: Spent about an hour and a half riding a bunch of short trails off of the state snow mobile trails and I really enjoyed it ! The trails were very, very curvy and had lots and lots of tree roots and rocks and a few small ups and downs. The longest trail I hit today was 1.1 miles and the shortest was 1/5 of a mile. I am new to this sport and there was no place that I felt comfortable enough to get any speed. Do plan on going back and trying some more trails but I was having tire problems so i stopped when I did. Thanks FOMBA for all your hard work making the trails, maintaining them and keeping them very well marked.

Review: Nice mix of gravel roads, Snowmobile trails with Singletrack loops off of them. Good For all levels. Can go for miles and miles on snowmobile trails. Singletrack have a lot of rocks and roots. Also quick turns so no high speeds here, but fun.

Review: Best trails in southeast NH. Lots of tight twisty turns. If you are an experienced rider you will love these trails. To any one who says these trails are too difficult there are plenty fire roads and a railroad bed for family rides.

Review: This is my home trail and why I love to bike. The FOMBA trails vary in difficulty. My only complaint is that noone has really posted the ratings at the trialheads. I have tried several different trails and I find Woodpecker to be the easiest, least technical trial. Hemlock Loop is tougher but still very doable for a beginer. I have run Red Pine, Moose Tracks and Deer Run. I find these 3 to be pretty hard and cause me to fall pretty regular.

FOMBA is basically a mountain bikers amusement park. I plan on honing my skills here for years to come.

Review: Me and a few friends went here recently and it was honestly the worst place I have ever ridden. Just terrible. Let me explain why. First off the trails we rode just had a very poor lay out. You never got going fast and the few times you actually.started picking up speed you are face either with some silly 180 degree turn or a beat up, loose, rocky climb. Next the trails are so rocky/rooty that you are constantly pedalling just to stay upright. There is no flow to any of the trails we rode just awkward tight turns and washed out corners. Now I like a challenge just like everyone else, but this place wasn't even challenging, it was just annoying. So yeah, I would say avoid gonna and go ride some place else. There are way.better options in the area.
