Northern NH Recreation & Attractions
North of the Notches in New Hampshire is an outdoorman's paradise, with rivers and lakes that reflect a pristine sky punctuated by dramatic mountains! Whether you are traveling on foot, on water, or riding a bicycle or ATV, there are uncrowded roads, trails, and waterways to accommodate you. Winter is no different with dogsledding, downhill, nordic and backcountry skiing, and snowmobiling on groomed trails. Even better, there are facilities with maintained trails, equipment and guides to make your adventure even more enjoyable.
Indoors there are cultural facilities that feature music and art, and museums to tell about the natural history and rich heritage of our region.
