Mountain Biking Salamander to Silverfish to Skyline

*****   Add a review
#31 of 114 mountain bike trails in New Hampshire
#3,731 in the world

Trail system with lots of rock gardens.

Note: This is called Grater Woods on the NEMBA website and on the trailhead info board and trail map. There's more the 7 miles of singeltrack here now, but not sure how much. I get about 8-9 miles in on my normal route, which doesn't repeat any trails and doesn't cover them all.

    This trio just scratches the surface of Grater Woods - the BEST riding area in Southern NH.

    These trails make for a very fun ride filled with many downhills, switch backs, tough climbs, and all around fun. Once you climb to the top of the hill you will find a great view with a map that shows all the visible mountains in the distance. There is is small clearing that is great for photos. You will find yourself in slippery situations during the winter, but during the summer these trail are an absolute thrill to ride. I recommend these trails to all rider types with a sense of adventure. Don't forget to bring water and sense of adventure.
