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.
