Mountain Biking Fox Park

***   Add a review
#57 of 114 mountain bike trails in New Hampshire
#6,759 in the world

Let me start off by saying I wish someone would GPS this trail. You can get lost in Fox Park quite easily (I do all the time), so give yourself a big window of time. Also, please don't pay too much attention to the trail length I gave. I honestly can't tell you how far back this goes.

This place has a good bit of variety, but it is mostly rocky/root-y single track that you'll be crawling up or flying down. There are some features mixed into the trails. A large 15+ foot log with the top hacked flat crosses a stream, a rather arbitrary boardwalk which reaches about 10 feet tall x 30 feet long you can ride down through the pine trees, and a dirt jump section which includes a few smaller jumps, an inclined log, some random log I think you're supposed to hop onto, and the coolest thing, a 3 foot high jump which throws you onto a steep decline at the bottom of which begins a 20 foot boardwalk/ramp that ends with a 6 - 7 foot gap. I ate dirt my first and only time, and my shin's still numb from where I banged it on the ground. So, Fox Park definitely has some cool stuff and it needs to really be explored! A lot of stream crossings could be cause for some more bridges, because I find myself walking across more than riding through.

The best strategy, I think, is to climb to the highest point you can, which inevitably leads to the dirt jump section ... maybe. Honestly, someone needs to map that place. It's also a place where some swamp walks could be a huuuuuuuuuuge benefit. Anybody looking to develop a trail, check out Fox Park!

Getting there
From I-93 North or South, take exit 25 and turn right. Once you hit the traffic circle, take the third exit and drive through town. The road will fork right after the post office, and so you want to continue right. Watch out for college students and pedestrians! Go up the hill, past the bank, and take a left at the blinking yellow light onto Langdon St. Continue through a four-way stop, and you want to take a right following the funeral home. The Fox Park parking lot is on your left. There are a few entrances to the trail, but the best way I think is to ride your bike past the playground and pavilion. Should be one trailhead that starts there.

    It's either up oe down and old school technical. Beginners will be doing the hike and bike. Okay, but average when compared to trail systems in Vermont.

    Be prepared to climb right out of the parking lot. Climb the main trail to the top and enjoy the downhill

    trails. There are some really technical features that I avoided but you might want to try. The trails are
    not marked at all but it's a series of loops and you just have to keep going down to get out.
