Mountain Biking Fort Rock

****   Add a review
#14 of 114 mountain bike trails in New Hampshire
#1,931 in the world

Network of trails are a combination of Exeter town forest conservation land, and private land owners. Lots of rooty, rocky, technical singletrack.
Land is divided by Rte. 101, connected by large (rideable) culvert that goes under Rte. 101.

    Rocks, roots, and bigger rocks... Wow definitely a place to test your skills.. Not flowy and fast, just old school new England style, some big stuff for those into tech... Very tough when wet

    Recommend reviewing the trail map ... Choose a trail (i.e. blue ...) and do a couple of laps. Trail is technical in terms of identifying the best lines ... worth repeats ... and picking better lines ... a few hidden trials-esque obstacles.

    Fort Rock is an expansive area. Different sections have different names and there are many different places where you can access the trail system. South of 101, Fort Rock is fairly rock and technical (no surprise there), however, the section accessed off of 27 or Industrial avenue is a bit smoother and flowier. North of 101, the trails become progressively less rocky. Once you reach the power lines and continue north, you find same pretty smooth an flowy trails again, as well as two long bridges over the swamp. I am a fan of the fast and flowy so I stay out of Fort Rock Proper and ride the North end around the power lines or the southern part across route 27 from the bike shop.

    Fort Rock doesn't have a ton of elevation change, but if you love rock gardens, you'll love this place! It's a good combination of flowy single track and tough rocky trails that will beat you up a bit. I've been there a handful of times and really enjoyed it! There is enough to keep you entertained for a nice day's worth of riding. Be sure to check out PBR!

    Great technical singletrack. There are plenty of rocky hill climbs to challenge most riders. Numerous large boulders to navigate. Plenty of trail for longer rides, most of which is technical with rocks and roots.

    Good variety, plenty of ground to cover and enough of a challenge to keep you on your toes. Trail includes rocky terrain, series of plank rides, and some windy single track. Much fun!

    Fun place with a lot of riding to be had. Two sides of the forest separated by the road. The south side has rock gardens, boulders, roots and the occasional skinny. I logged 14 miles and didn't hit nearly everything on the lower half.

    Lots of great single track with rock gardens, boulders, 50 foot long planks to ride, bridges, long, fun log ride under the power lines. Its pretty flat so good for beginners.
