Southeast of Littleton and east of Twin Mountain, the Bretton Woods Nordic Center has 100 km of cross country ski trails in the spectacular mountain scenery under the shadow of Mt. Washington. The trails through glades of spruce and fir are groomed for skate and classic in-line and offer vistas dominated by the Presidential Range. The trail system is divided into three trail regions: Stickney Trail Systems, Deception Trail System and the Ammonoosuc Trail System. For the most part, the trails are easy or moderate. There are both a shelter and a warming hut on the trail system.
