Trail Description:

A collection of single and endurance friendly double track on a 33 mile loop course. Description of trails from start: Open and nearly flat road/dirt road for a fast 4 miles of warm-up, followed by a great combination of rideable woods doubletrack and singletrack, with plenty of passing opportunities. Then enough fun and challenging singletrack, mixed with enough doubletrack after that, to keep you smiling. Among the notable new trails included is Big Rock Trail, expected to quickly become a rave favorite among competitors. It is approximately 1.5 miles of mostly downhill, with one of those giant New Hampshire boulders dead center that is bridged on both sides, making for a great ride over. (Yes, a detour is available for those desiring one.) A brief stint of dirt woods road sets the rider up for the home stretch of the "Triple F" singletrack (Fast, Flowing, and Fun) that Greenfield Trails Association is so well known for.

Although some of the "challenging favorites" of the past have been tabled again for this year, this still should be considered an adventurous ride of no small measure, as New Hampshire is known to dish out. Plenty of singletrack to test the skills and soul. There is also approximately 3900 feet of elevation gain on the loop, translating to nearly 12,000 feet for those taking on the 100 mile challenge.

Estimated Course Composition:
60% Doubletrack/Jeep Trails
25% Singletrack (technical and New Englandy)
10% Dirt Road
5% Paved Road
