Description

Many groomed loops and routes are possible through Moose Brook State Park and the Pine Mountain area.

The Pump House loop is an easy 2 mile route for beginners. It is flowy and mostly flat. This ride can be extended by linking to the nearby Gorham Rec Trail.

The Hinchey trail is suitable for beginners and connects Moose Brook State Park to the Presidential Rail Trail. The Lost Campground trail leaves the Hinchey Trail 0.3 miles from Jimtown Road. This half mile loop is beginner-friendly after a short initial climb. What was once slated to be a campground is now a beautiful mature white pine forest.

For the intermediate rider, a 5 mile route loops from Old River Road to For Pete's Sake. From the Gorham Rec Trail, Old River Road follows the Moose River upstream for 1.5 miles (many choice river stops are found along the way). At the power line there is a short steep climb. From the top are impressive views of Mt. Madison and Mt. Adams. Further down the singletrack there is a sign for For Pete's Sake, a rippin' fast 1.5 mile downhill. A left turn at the bottom of the hill closes the loop to the Gorham Rec Trail.

A detailed map of the network that includes difficulty ratings for the individual trails is available from the Coos Cycling Club.

These fat biking trails are part of a 22-mile - and growing! - purpose-built mountain biking network maintained by the Coos Cycling Club, a non-profit organization dedicated to growing the mountain biking community through trail-building, group rides for all levels and ages, and vibrant events.
