With over 60 miles of trails across 10,000 acres, there is something for every trail user in Bear Brook State Park. The trails range from double to singletrack and from easy to difficult and include some purpose-built mountain bike trails. All trails are open to hiking, running, mountain bikes and equestrians. Please take care and respect fellow trail users. For detailed descriptions of the trails, visit the New Hampshire State Parks website.
Swimming, boating and fishing is also plentiful at Bear Brook State Park. Archery Pond is a universally accessible fly-fishing-only pond. There are also two public archery ranges. The campground at Beaver Pond is open for reservations Memorial Day through Columbus Day. There are also two sizes of furnished cabins (4 or 6 person occupancy) available for rent at Bear Hill Pond. Dogs are not allowed in the cabins. There is a drop-off area and the cabins are walk-in. Cabins do not have electricity. Visitors to Bear Hill have easy access to the Hall Mountain trail network, a swimming beach, and non-motorized boating and fishing on Bear Hill Pond.
