one of the many outstanding‘Grand Adventures’ that visitorslove so much about NewHampshire’s North Country.”Ride the Wilds, which spans theentirety of Coos County, con-sists of five regions or “portals”for riders to choose from: NorthPortal in Pittsburg; NorthwestPortal spanning Colebrook,Stewartstown, Columbia andStratford; Northeast Portalspanning Millsfield, Errol,Dummer and Dix Grant;Southeast Portal spanningBerlin, Cambridge, Gorham,Milan and Success; and theSouthwestern Portal spanningLancaster and Groveton.Riders could use the Ride theWilds trail network to ride fromthe western side of CoosCounty clear across to the east-ern edge of the county. For example, they could start their adventure at Coleman StatePark in Stewartstown, havelunch at the Moose Muck Coffee House in Colebrook,and then take off for Pittsburg,where they could have a greatmeal and a good night sleep atthe Rainbow Grille & Tavern atthe Tall Timber Lodge. Or, rid-ers could begin at JerichoMountain State Park in Berlinwith 80 miles of varied andexciting terrain, have lunch atthe Northland Restaurant andDairy Bar in Berlin, ride toErrol and have dinner at theHawg Trawf, and then spendthe night at the Errol Motel. Or  perhaps riders would rather kick off their ride in Lancaster, before making their way northinto Groveton and Stratford— the options are endless.All towns within the Ride theWilds trail system allow ATVson town roads along with somestate highways to access servic-es such as food, gas and lodg-ing, or to connect with other sections of trail. Look for ATVPermitted signs on open sec-tions of highway.“A fantastic experience for thewhole family, Ride the Wilds isnot only the best-kept secret of ATV enthusiasts, it is also agreat vacation adventure optionfor those wanting to try it for the first time. Several business-es along the Ride the Wildstrails offer ATV rentals, all nec-essary safety equipment, aswell as the option of takingguided tours,” said CorrineRober, of Bear Rock Adventures in Colebrook,which provides ATV rentals,guided tours and access to theRide the Wilds network. “Youdo not need to own an ATV toexperience all the thrills,scenery and fun of Ride theWilds since there are plenty of affordable rental options aswell.”The following businesses offer rentals, guided tours, sales,and/or service:Absolute PowerSports (rentals,tours, sales and service)461 Main Street, Gorham, NH03581Bear Rock Adventures (rentals& tours)107 Bear Rock Road,Colebrook, NH 03576Dalton Mountain Motorsports(rentals, sales & service)475 Lancaster Road, Lancaster, NH 03584Jericho Motorsports (rentals,tours, sales and service) 232 Jericho Road, Berlin, NH03570 Northeast Snowmobile & ATVRentals (rentals & tours)299 Main Street, GorhamIn making Ride the Wilds areality, Brown credited thegrassroots efforts of the NorthCountry OHRV Coalition,which consists of 11 OHRVclubs, four chambers of com-merce, and five snowmobileclubs, who worked together to build, maintain and market thetrails. Each organization hasone board member serving onthe Coalition. Ride the Wildshas partnered with NewHampshire Grand, the officialvisitor information source for the Grand North, to encouragetourists to ride the trails andexperience the numerous attrac-tions, restaurants, shops, andadventures northern NewHampshire has to offer.The Grand Opening of the trailsystem was commemorated lastJune at Coleman State Park inStewartstown.
