Dirt Rides

New England is a great place to ride. The region has mountains, ocean, lakes, and forests.....all within a few hours of riding. In this section you will find information about rides, roads, restaurants, and more. This page is your key to a wealth of local information in two main parts.

 

(1) The navigation menu on the left side of the page will lead you to additional ride planning information. 

 

(2) The tabular list below contains Rides that are primarily unpaved.  These are excellent motorcycle rides that will be enjoyable to a visitor or a native of New England.

 

Custom Map links open detailed Google custom maps, GPX-Track links open GPX track files, GPX links open generic GPX route files, and KML links open Google Earth Maps.

 

GPX-Track files are posted for all rides. GPX files are posted for rides that stay on listed dirt roads. If a ride includes off-road segments then only a GPX-Track file will be posted.

Hodges Village Dam

An excellent place to take your knobbies! Pick up a permit at the RMV and have at it. I've had a few great rides through there on my ancient SP250, lots of everything - rocks, grass, water, sand, trees.
