Mountain Biking Pinnacle

****   Add a review
#15 of 114 mountain bike trails in New Hampshire
#2,010 in the world

Many loops and short singletrack trails with tough technical sections, including interesting bridges, ledge steps
and fantastic winding singletrack downhill. Great race in August, a 4 mile loop course. Trails are well-marked
with signage.

    Used to be awesome, but a windstorm and logging over the last year or so has killed the flow. Hope it is rebuilt as it was a great option for the area.

    This was my first black diamond trail system. Tough climb up, but the reward was sweet as I descended down a fun network of trails. Take the trail system up and down for maximum enjoyment. Avoid the fire rd whenever possible.

    There was too much snow on the ground to navigate the single track. So stayed on double track up to Pinnacle lookout. It lookslike they may stock trail maps at trailheads in warmer months. I found one online at:

    I look forward to biking it in the Spring.

    The image i loaded up is the alpine ski jumpat the trailhead behind the highschool.

    This is a great trail that is well marked. Very good climb to the top of the mountain that in granny gear you can peddle all the way up. Great down hill however at a large section the signs point you down a fire rd which was disappointing since you want to be on a trail for down hill. There was a trail that continued down, but I kept with the signs. Next time I will stay on the trail. Plenty of rocks, some bridges, but no real narly stuff where when you look at it you think I may kill myself, one good rock jump, but plenty of skilled riding

    Nice single track. Lot's of elevation change. Long climbs/descents. Nice rock and ledge features.

    Well-marked singletrack network, with plenty of challenge for anyone intermediate on up.
