Description

Lafayette Trails are a section of National Forest West of I-93 adjoining the Franconia Notch State Park and extending down to exit 36.
 
The trailhead is 100 yards in from the trail head parking off route 141 (Butterhill Road).
 
This land is promoted by the national forest for ungroomed Nordic skiing along the former road bed of route 3 and with several additional loops. These are detailed in a kiosk map at the site.
 
The area is suitable for mountain bikes but the forest service is not maintaining these trails for single track riding. They are suitable for those seeking to explore relatively gentle terrain adjacent to Franconia Notch State Park and bicycles are permitted.
 
This parcel also adjoins the Franconia Notch State Park Extension and may represent a future opportunity for interconnection.
