New Hampshire has a long history of mushing, which started here in the early 1900�s. Today you will find mushing as both a recreational and competitive pursuit, but back then, sled dogs were used primarily for transportation purposes.

Today, you can see dog teams and mushers out on multi-use trails training for a race or just out enjoying the scenery and doing what they love. If you encounter a musher and the team of dogs on the trail, please give them plenty of space and approach the team only if the musher says it�s okay to do so.
