Ride The Wilds
Good clean fun is overrated!. Hit the accelerator and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime!
What is Ride the Wilds?
Ride the Wilds is located in Coos County- a new 1,000-plus mile interconnected All-Terrain-Vehicle (ATV) trail system throughout northern New Hampshire. The Grand Opening of the newly established trail system was recently commemorated at Coleman State Park in Stewartstown, NH on June 15th, 2013. NH Governor Maggie Hassan was there to cut the ribbon and celebrate the new tourism attraction for the region. Harry Brown, President of the North Country OHRV Coalition, has been the leader of the initiative and was able to complete the project with the help and cooperation of area ATV and snowmobile clubs, private landowners, the local and State Police, the NH Fish & Game Dept., Border Patrol, Coos County municipalities and the Coos County Sherriff’s Dept.
ATV riders are going to love the experience of the connected trails. No longer will they have to trailer their vehicles from one location to another. Now they will have the ability to head out for a day or more, with opportunities to stop and stay along the way. Connecting the trails will help ATV riders to explore North Country communities such as Gorham, Berlin, Errol, Pittsburg, Stewartstown, Colebrook, Stratford, and Groveton. Bear Rock Adventures is perfectly located to provide your ATV rental needs so you can enjoy the Great North Woods’ grand beauty and wildlife.
Our ATVs and UTVs can take riders to places that cars just can’t go. From our location on the trail system, guests can ride to the top of Beaver Brook Falls, to Diamond Pond, up Sugar Hill for a picnic with a sweeping view of the valleys below and peaks beyond, or even through the Balsams trails to head up the steep Dixville Peaks to see the windmills up close and take in the expansive scenic vista.
From the Metallak ATV Club trails in Colebrook, guests can ride to up to the Great North Woods ATV system in Pittsburg, or head south to the Millsfield system which connects from the Dixville Peaks. The entire interconnected system is “Ride the Wilds”. A grand new adventure for outdoor enthusiasts and families alike.

“Ride the Wilds” and other trail system maps can be found in electronic format at http://backwoodsgpstrails.com/wp3/coos-county-atv-trail-map. Folks can use their own GPS or smart phone to utilize these digital maps on their ride. At this point, we provide paper copies of the Colebrook trail system which branches off from our location.
Winter trail use: Mileage and access to the trail systems listed below may vary from summer to winter. Some trails and trail systems may be closed to ATVs and trail bikes during snow cover/snowmobile season. Maintenance and trail grooming of these areas may be performed by local snowmobile clubs during winter months. Please confirm with the local clubs as to what is open. Use extreme caution and good judgment when riding on permitted snowmobile trails. Irresponsible and reckless riding will undermine winter trail maintenance and conditions. As always, ride smart.
