(Concord, NH) The New Hampshire Bureau of Trails announces the start of the season for Off Highway Recreational Vehicles (OHRV). Traditionally, May 23rd marks the end of mud season, and the opening of OHRV trails for public use. Beginning today, designated riding areas in the southern and central part of the state will be open, along with the trails at Jericho Mountain State Park and the Millsfield trail system. Most of the remaining trails in Coos County will open later this week.
"Riders are always excited for opening day," says Bureau of Trails Chief Chris Gamache. "Although the entire trail network is not completely open, there is a variety of riding terrain throughout the state." The Bureau of Trails, local OHRV clubs and landowners have been working collaboratively to prepare the trails for the upcoming season. Riders are advised to check with local clubs for specific information on whether trails are open or closed before riding. The Bureau of Trail's website<https://www.nhstateparks.org/Activities/atving/trail-information.aspx> (nhtrails.org) provides weekly updates on trail conditions.
