New Durham Trails ATV Trails

Northeast of Concord near New Durham, the ATV riding trail system is maintained by the New Durham Valley ATV Club. The New Durham trail system is located in Strafford County southeast of Lake Winnipesaukee. These trails are on private land and are maintained by the New Durham Valley ATV Club.

If you have ridden these trails prior to September 2012, it is important to realize that the trails near Alton are now closed and the only legal riding in that area is on the Class VI roads. This means that only the main trail leading to Merrymeeting Road and the Rines Road trailhead straight to Kings Highway are legal. Everything else in the Alton area is now closed. A new riding area in Alton is under discussion and planning.

To reach the trailhead from the intersection of SR11 and SR28 north of New Durham, head north on SR28. Travel 7.4 miles and then turn right on Rines Road. Continue on Rines Road and use the parking on the left before the green gate and the bridge. This is the newer parking area and are located before the old Rines Road parking area.

Note: The State Of New Hampshire requires a NH state registration tag on every ATV. An out-of-state registration tag is not valid in NH. They will issue a fine if you try riding without a NH tag.
