Description

The Profile Trail is 2.3 miles and located in the town of Bethlehem and goes between US-3 and US-302. The trail is made up of a section of the the old Bethlehem narrow gauge Profile & Franconia Notch Railroad. Now the level trail is surfaced in gravel, ballast, dirt, and grass. Because the surface is somewhat varied, mountain bikes are recommended over road bikes.

ATVs are permitted with snowcover only.
