83CJ5s does anyone know any good trails in the manchester concord area? or even class 6 roads in the white mountain region? thanks

sneck Hey doing a quick google search seems like most of the class 6 trails are near either the maine or vt border, with a few near concord or the white mountains. Anyone know of any closer to the nashua/manchester area? I'm going to be up there this weekend putting a lift on my jeep, and want to find some trails to break it in on. Would love some company too!

Yeah it probably is Rochester. Looking at it on a map it's in a wierd Rochester, Farmington, Strafford triangle. Town lines change alot in that area. I have the NH atlas and gazetteer, and that's a pretty decent map to have in your arsenal. I need to spend some time and figure out how to download my GPS info to my computer. I track all the trails I use and save them on my handheld. If I knew how to do it I could send that out to people. Maybe this weekend. A friend of mine grew up in that area and knows alot of trails out there. I've been on about 4 or 5 that I can't even remember how to get to them. If I figure out the GPS download thing, I'll post the maps I make so they could be printed out.

We go out there sometimes and my friends stock YJ makes it. You should probably use a spotter for tire placement over some obstacles but u should be fine. Follow sheepboro road to a 4 way stop and go straight through. It gets kind of gnarly in some spots. When the trail ends take a left and you will go right back past Sheepboro road on left.(its a loop). Theres another one ive been on called little niagra road. At the end of sheepboro road trail take a right and look for the sign on the left within 2 miles( unsure of the distance.) Neither roads are posted and will give u at least 1 hour plus of some good crawling.

RubiconRich I would join a Jeep club. and never go out alone even on class 6 roads.

flyfish29 I too am looking for legal trails anyplace in NH (or even VT). I am in the Monadnock region, but camp often up in the whites and would like some roads to explore with my son or family- no crawling or anything- just fun backcountry roads that lead to nowhere or perhaps something cool.

thanks!

Are all NH Class VI "roads" open to public?

Hi - Rookie NH Jeeper here, so please forgive the obvious (perhaps) question, but I see a lot of suggestions for "intro to off road excursions" that lead to NH Class VI roads. Are all of these roads (some are barely rights of way) shown on various state or town maps considered open to the public for use at your own risk of passage? I've seen many identified as Class VI roads - some with the springtime access prohibited until after a specific date or with a posted weight limit - that I thought about exploring, but never want to tread where my Jeep is not welcome. The last place I want to find myself is at the business end of a shotgun in a starring role of "NH Deliverence"!!

I live in the shadow of Mt. Kearsarge, and I have a handful of Class VI roads in my back yard, so if I knew that they were open for exploring without concern for trespassing, I might get out and start peeling that rookie rind off of myself!

I have noted the trail suggestions posted here, but I don't know those areas of NH well enough to be able to find them without more direction. If anyone local knows the Warner area and can suggest a good beginner adventure, please do! Thanks!

Tech help ???

Haven't used used this forum yet so I may be asking in the wrong place!
But I have a question!!!
I put a 3" lift Rugged ridge lift kit on my 2005 wrangler. it came with all new shocks, coil springs...ect. everything was great, but after a few weeks I noticed on the highway if i step on the gas it feels like the rear end wants to pull or almost feels like it wants to fish tail, even though it doesn't . It seems like the left rear wheel is accelerating faster then the rest of the jeep hence feeling of twisting or fish tailing the rear end (is this maybe just a spring that is weaker ? all parts are new with this kit) just kind of strange. any ideas???

RubiconRich The whole state of NH is full of class 6 roads. you just have to get out there and find them.

Kind of want to see the blazer, haha.

GREEN-MACHINE heading up to jackson saturday morning. breakfast at the waterwheel resturaunt, top of the tank, then in to the back woods for a day of fun. any takers.

6x6emaxx there are a couple of class 6 roads up in canaan nh i was on an old logging rd it was about 2 miles long good stuff for a stock jeep.
07-11-2010 05:19 PM
G-Pur Nevermind. I think the one I'm talking about is officially 'Old Green Hill Rd'. Still, watch out for the guy.

There is a place that is actually labeled "Jeep Only Trail" in Barrington. You can search for it, but it's a 2 mile road that runs between Warren Rd and Hall Rd, right off of 4.

jeepyj84 The range roads in the Pembroke area are plentiful and decent. They are class VI roads. Nothing to hard by any means but a decent amount of trails. You can always venture off to the power line trails. They intersect a few times but not many people like going on those cuz they are pretty rough.

APBAinMaine Not being a wise-guy, but I'm curious -- did you transpose the V and the I? I recall that road being tricky much of the year.
12-14-2008 08:58 PM
j.amrol Yeah I know of a few good places... More in the concord/ manchester area.

Looking for NH LEGAL trails.

I hit one all the time in the Rochester/Barrington area called "Old Green Hill Rd ." It's a class IV with some fun stuff, and you dont need to worry about trespassing. I need more places to go to. Anyone know of any??
