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??

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.

In Barrington. Corner of Tolend and Substitute Road. The trail starts at substitute. You take it for about a half a mile then hang a pretty tight left. The trail is nice, but their is a crotchety guy who lives at the far end of it. You can see his house through the trees, just make sure you turn around BEFORE you get to his place. Also just a bit further down Tolend is a 'class A'? road that seemed to be a nice little trail, until you run into the Blazer that's stuck and abandoned in the mud.

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.

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

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!

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!

Just got my JK last week. It is completely stock. I am new to off roading in a Jeep, but have previous experience with ATVs. The only trails I am familiar with are in the Ossipee area. Everyone talks about the trails near Barrington. Are these trails that a stock JK could handle? Does anyone have suggestions as to good beginner trails in NH?

There are some really good trails in Strafford. One of them is Sheepboro road. Look it up on a map since it would take too long for me to explain its location. 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.

Thanks for the information. Sheepboro Road is coming up on google maps as Rochester, is this the trail? I'm really not familiar with the area.

It's funny how close this is to some of the trails that people have mentioned in Barrington. I really need to load up my recovery gear, a co-pilot, and make a day of checking them out.

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.

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!

Class VI roads in northern NH

I'm looking for roads like Sandwich Notch for Jeep Adventures with my 3 year old daughter. I no longer deliver mail so we take my right hand drive jeep out on bumpy rides as my daughter calls them. Any good suggestions not too far from Moultonborough?
