South Pond Horseback Riding

The 7th most popular equestrian trail in New Hampshire.

Near Gorham in the White Mountain National Forest, the South Pond is a 21 mile route open to horseback riding.

These include: Sawyer River Road, Rob Brook Road, East Branch/Slippery Brook Road, Evergreen Valley Road, Pinkham B, Peaked Hill, Sandwich Notch Road, Tripoli Road, Patte Brook, Wild River Road, Langdon Brook Road, and Zealand Road.

Overall, South Pond is the 7th most popular horse trail of all 17 horseback rides in New Hampshire.
