Jericho Mountain State Park ATV Trails

The Jericho Mountain ATV Trails are located in a New Hampshire State Park (Jericho Mountain). The public park offers 90-miles of interconnected trail riding for ATVs, UTV’s, trail bikes, and snowmobiles. The Jericho Mountain network links to the Ride the Wilds trail system which is the largest ATV trail system in the northeastern USA.

All of the towns within the Ride the Wilds system allow ATVs on designated sections of public roads. Riders can park their trucks and trailers upon arrival, and not need them again until the ride home. On the Jericho Mountain trail system, riders cruise on ATVs between the towns of Berlin and Gorham to access food, gas, lodgings, events, entertainment, and different sections of the trail.

The State of New Hampshire partners with the Androscoggin Valley ATV Club, and surrounding towns, to keep the network well-maintained. To utilize the trails, riders must register their off highway recreational vehicle (OHRV) and observe the riding rules for on- and off-highway use. Jericho Mountain State park trail maps can be purchased in town from many locations, or downloaded.
