Trail Description
About this trail
This is a very cool but very short singletrack loop in north conway. The trail itself is fun and non-technical but there are many beginner / intermediate rock lines right on the trail that are very well made. Nothing bigger than a 2.5 foot drop, but still very fun.

Trail Q&A
Rider Questions


Q: Is this trail part of a network of trails? I'll be up visiting this weekend, and want to sneak in an hr or two of trail riding. I've heard this is a good trail, but should I, or can I, link it up with something else to get 5 to 7 miles? -Guest

A: Yes, there are a lot of trails you can access from the same trailhead just off to the left of "Stick and Stones". I can't remember any trail names but ended up in an old quarry operation that was very cool.

Review: Loved this ride. A lot of up and down and winding narrow spots. Plenty of roots and rocks to attack or avoid. It was highly recommended by locals and I understood why. Don't skip this ride when in North Conway!

Review: Glad I found this place, fun little 2 mile pump track. Ended up doing five loops. Lots of fun rock features to play on.

Review: Rode 6:30 AM last weekend. The Chipmunk thought it was a little early for tourists. Great warm up. The twist and turns were great fun. Rode clockwise. Warmed I rode a few other trails in the area. Some had some difference in elevation. Like the trails with twist and turns. Rode it last year will be back.

Review: Awesome ten minute loop. The trail can be a beginner friendly trail if the side rocks are avoided and can be more of an advanced trail if the drops and rollers are ridden. I liked it riding counter clockwise.

Review: The trail that got everyone addicted to mtb as kids and is still an amazing time every time for every skill level.

Review: Fun little loop, but a bit short. Lots of little stunts to mess around on. They recently added a new sign/kiosk.. head straight in from the pudding pond entrance and behind the sign (continuing straight as you come in the fire road) you should see a sign for sticks and stones. Also worth checking out sidestep trail for a longer xc/ more adventurous ride.. Take the left under the power lines instead of going to the sign. A small single track to the left of the boulders at the pump track entrance leads uphill a ways, past a conservation area sign. At a junction at the top a small trail leads right with a bicycle sign. Super fun, leads all the way to red tail quarry.

Review: Place is awesome. As cool as advertised. Lotta twists and turns. Cool obstacles to get some nice air. Ramps and obstacles show up quick. Great singletracks and fireroads under canopy. Intertwines with powerline loop. Other than the swamps SUPER wet and a lot of standing water. Got a little muddy. Some log paths knocked over, but whatever. Lots of fun anyways. Awesome awesome time. I loved it!
