Around Pittsburg in the Great North Woods, there is an extensive network of groomed snowmobile trails. These trails are maintained by the Pittsburg Ridge Runners Club. Pittsburg is the northernmost town in New Hampshire and is the largest town in area in the United States (over 280 sq. miles).
Each season, the Pittsburg Ridge Runners Club grooms a trail system of over 200 miles that winds through some of the most beautiful and sparsely populated areas of the northeast; yet it has excellent connecting trails to all of New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and Quebec, Canada. Keep in mind that trails are closed, unless specifically marked open. Also, watch out for the slow moving groomers.
There are numerous designated snowmobiling parking areas for the Pittsburg Snowmobile Trail System, but a good place to start is right from the Pittsburg town center. Most lodges offer snowmobile rentals.
Note: The Pittsburg Ridge Runners Club sells a 14 inch by 20 inch topo snowmoible trail map that shows all trail numbers and trail designations. We recommend purchasing this map prior to riding these trails.
While snowmobiling Pittsburg, all snowmobiles must have a New Hampshire OHRV registration decal. To obtain a NH OHRV registration decal, you will need to show proof of member ship in a New Hampshire snowmobile club, such as the Pittsburg Ridge Runners Club.
