Pennacook Trails is a network of high-quality single-track mountain bike trails through both private and town-owned parcels in the River Valley area of Rumford. It includes 3.5 miles of singletrack dedicated mountain bike trails, and 1 mile of doubletrack multiuse pathways and woods roads.

Take Off (0.68 miles), Fawntastic (0.38 miles), and Bull Pine (0.6 miles) are all easy singletrack trails. The intermediate singletrack Rope Tow trail (1.85 miles) provides more of a challenge for those wanting to test their skills. 

The High School trail (0.94 miles) and Inrun Road (0.2 miles) are multiuse doubletrack trails. Please be aware of ATVs and snowmobiles that may also be enjoying these doubletrack trails.
