Mountain Biking Mines Falls Park

***   Add a review
#40 of 114 mountain bike trails in New Hampshire
#4,834 in the world

There are a variety of trails here, some paved, some doubletrack, some singletrack. Many of the trails are flat and not too technical, but the trail right along the canal has some more challenging sections. The fact that if you mess up, you'll land in the water makes it seem a little more intimidating than it may deserve.

    It really depends on what you are looking for. I've been riding Mine Falls for years on Hybrid's. The main trails are wide and hard packed and there is even a primary paved trail that runs the length of the park. As a new mountain biker, I enjoy the easier single tracks but there are portions of some trails that offer short climbs, rocks and roots and even some quick turns. For me working on skills, this seems to be a great location. As stated before, you can beat the views. With the canal, Nashua river and falls, it is a great fall destination.

    A lot of people talk trash about Mines Falls, but it's the perfect place to take your Noob friends. There is some tech, but there is always a b-line for those faint of heart.

    It's a great place to take the family for a nice easy ride, but if you're looking to really ride, there's not a whole lot going on here. The falls are nice, though, so if you find yourself here, be sure to check them out!

    These trails have pretty much remained unchanged since I was a kid. There is a ton of land in there and I can't understand why there haven't been some more technical trails added over the years. I will only ride here as a last resort or if I am going out with the family.

    Very unimpressive. Overcrowded by families and pets, probably because of how smooth the main trails are. I could probably ride my road bike here. There are small (15-20ft) paths off of the main trails that loop back to the main trail. Some of these are okay, but very simple. Waste of a trip.

    Plenty of different level trails. Pavement and dirt for the novice, intermediate trails, and one or two tougher trails. We ride this trail quite often as my wife enjoys the ease and scenery.

    It's not nearly as exciting as the FOMBA trails, but good for a quick ride after work. There are some great views of the canal and the river; it's very pretty.
