North Conway is a premiere destination for snowmobiling. There are hundreds of miles of trails in a massive network that runs throughout the state – in fact, you can even reach Canada from North Conway by snowmobile if you’re in the mood for a LONG ride! There are many ways to snowmobile North Conway. Here are some tips and advice!
Renting a Snowmobile
Renting is an easy way to have a great time on a snowmobile without having to deal with any of the logistics. There are several companies in town where you can park and rent snowmobiles and gear, then ride snowmobiles right from the facility. You’ll receive a safety training and equipment, and then you’ll have access to the trail system. Northern Extremes, in Bartlett, NH, offers rentals for 2, 3, and 4 hour trips. Pricing varies depending on the day of the week you book, but a single snowmobile rents for about $100 for a 2 hour trip. Let’s Ride Rentals is located in Conway, NH, and rents snowmobiles anywhere from 1 hour to a Full Day.
Several companies offer guided tours by snowmobile. This is a great option for groups new to snowmobiling, or for those who want local expertise on the trails. The Northern Extremes Bretton Woods location offers many options, from quick 1-hour introductory tours to half day trips to overnight excursions. There are discounts based on group size, and the experienced guides make sure everyone stays safe and has a great time. If you’re traveling with a group, Pinkham Vacation Rentals has several vacation rental homes nearby, including this cozy pet-friendly chalet, a luxury home with a hot tub, and a townhouse with space for the whole crowd.
Snowmobile Trail System
If you bring your own snow machines, there are many entry points to the expansive trail system in the area. One such entry point is the Marshall Conservation Area on West Side Road in Conway. Here, you can park in the large lot and head along the railroad tracks or through the wooded trails. Another option is the Green Hills Preserve trail system. To reach it, you can park behind Wal-Mart in North Conway (here is a link to more information). This system gives you access to elevated terrain, so you’ll get great views. For a full map of the trails and entry points in the Valley, pick up a trail map from the Mountain Meadow Riders, available online or in many local gas stations and grocery stores.
