Franconia Area

Franconia Area

Franconia Area NEMBA was founded in 2015 to help steward, promote and improve the extensive network of trails in the Ammonoosuc Valley, which run north and west of Franconia Notch. The Ammonoosuc Valley extending from Bretton Woods to the Connecticut River offers extensive riding opportunities with gentle terrain in the valleys and challenging singletracks in the hills with stunning vistas along the way.

The Profile Trails Network includes the trails in the Franconia Easton Sugar Hill region with connections planned to neighboring towns of Bethlehem and Littleton. The center of the network is Dow Park and Fox Hill in the village of Franconia. There are restrooms behind the Chamber of Commerce in the Town Hall parking lot. Cannon Mountain, Franconia Notch State Park and the White Mountain National Forest are located on the south side of Franconia. The Cooley Jericho Community Forest owned and maintained by Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust is located at the junction of Easton, Landaff and Sugar Hill and includes a newly built trail system including a purpose-built single track that connects Trumpet Round Road in Sugar Hill to Route 116 in South Easton by Connection to the NFS Jericho Road Trail and several hike bike multi-use trails.

The Profile Trails cover private as well as public lands, is maintained by volunteers and is shared with community users in all seasons. We depend on the generosity and goodwill of private landowners to preserve the integrity of the network, and ask that all trail users be respectful of land owners, fellow trail users, and the trails themselves.
