New Hampshire’s Jericho Mountain State Park offers miles of OHV trail excitement

Jericho Mountain State Park is one of the premier off-highway vehicle trail riding areas in the northeastern U.S.

Purchased with funds from OHV registrations, this 7,500-acre park near Berlin in northern New Hampshire promises more than 80 miles of trails for motorcyclists and ATV riders.

Routes range from smooth gravel roads to tight, twisty trails that cross rocky streams and reach commanding vistas. Visitors also can enjoy a swim at the beach, plus canoeing or fishing on Jericho Lake. Picnic and toilet facilities are located throughout the park.

The park has a campground with five cabins, four tent sites and nine RV sites. The cabins cost $50 a night, while the campsite fees are $25 a night. Make a reservation at ReserveAmerica or call (877) 647-2757.

Jericho Mountain has become a hub for trail riding in the Great North Woods region of the state. Some trails only permit ATVs and UTVs, not motorcycles.

Berlin opened a City Connector Trail stretching from Jericho Mountain to the Success Trail on the other side of the city. Riders can access food, fuel and other services using designated city streets.

Success Pond, located 20 miles from Berlin on the New Hampshire and Maine border, is the end of the line for motorcycles. ATVs and UTVs are allowed to continue farther north.
