OHRV Club and Trail Information

CLUB & TRAIL INFORMATION

New Hampshire’s OHRV Trail System is made up of lands owned and managed by the NH Bureau of Trails and thousands of miles of trails that are located on private lands throughout the State. The private land trails are maintained by local OHRV Clubs that have permission from the landowners to create and maintain trails on their property. Without private landowners’ sharing their land, NH would not have the trail system that we currently do. Please be respectful when using these lands – stay on the designated trails, carry-in/carry-out, use designated toilet facilities, yield to all other trail users, and keep the music down. For specific trail system or area information please contact the corresponding club from the list below.   
 

Please visit the Bureau of Trails’ Facebook Page for more trail notifications, events, club shares, public hearing notices and other information regarding the sport of off-road riding.

*All State highways that are open to OHRVs will close on October 31st, 30 minutes after sunset.*

New Hampshire OHRV User Information

OHRVing in NH

OHRVing in New Hampshire is one of the state’s most popular forms of summer recreation. With 1,000 miles of OHRV trails throughout the state, it’s easy to see why.

While there are a number of trails on state owned or managed land that are maintained by the New Hampshire Bureau of Trails, the majority of trails are on private land. 70% of New Hampshire land is privately owned. Private land trails are maintained by the local snowmobile clubs. The clubs are responsible for obtaining landowner permission and maintaining the trails based on their wishes. It is essential that snowmobilers respect landowners’ wishes and their land. NO RESPECT = NO TRAILS

New Hampshire State law provides certain protections for landowners who open their land to those using it for outdoor recreation.

OHRVers can only ride on trails designated and signed as a OHRV trail. Riders should familiarize themselves with signage and state laws.

There is no digital OHRV map produced by the state at this time, but plans are in the works to generate one in the future. For now, clubs sell paper maps through their individual websites for their club systems. NH Off Highway Vehicle Association (NHOHVA) has a NH state map to show where the trail systems are in general throughout the state.
 

Registering Your OHRV

In New Hampshire OHRVs must be registered when operated anywhere other than the owner’s property. Riding is only allowed on approved trails or on someone’s land that has provided the rider with written permission. There are no additional trail user fees in N.H.

Registrations can be obtained in person at authorized registration agents throughout the state. They may also be obtained in person from the New Hampshire Fish & Game Headquarters, or by calling Fish & Game at (603) 271-4300.

Current registration fees may be accessed here. Fees are reduced for both resident and non-resident OHRVers if they are a member of an OHRV club. To learn more about joining a club contact the club that maintains the trails in the area you ride.

Your OHRV Registration Fees at Work

Registration fees in New Hampshire are split between two state agencies, NH Fish and Game and the NH Dept. of Natural and Cultural Resources, Division of Parks and Recreation’s Bureau of Trails. In addition, $1 from each registration goes into the Fish & Game Search and Rescue Fund, $5 from each registration goes to the registration agent, and $2 from each registration goes to the vendor of the electronic registration system.

NH Fish and Game is responsible for the administration of the OHRV registration program, OHRV safety education, and law enforcement out on the trails.

The majority of monies the Bureau of Trails receives are returned to the local snowmobile clubs through the Bureau’s Grant-In-Aid Program. For OHRV clubs, there is one grant per year to provide funds for OHRV trail construction and maintenance (including bridge building/maintenance), updating or replacement of trail grading equipment, and grading reimbursement help with fuel costs of grading trails.

OHRV Trail Signage

New Hampshire’s OHRV trail signs have been created based on international standards for the safety of riders, as well as the rest of the public.
 
Why? 
Because who wants to be out on the trail lost? It’s not a good feeling when your gas is getting low and you don’t know where you are or how far away the pumps are. Or what if a rider experiences a medical emergency and needs to let help know their location? And riders should always be able to tell if they are still on an authorized trail system, or have taken an incorrect turn.

It is the rider’s responsibility to familiarize themselves with trail signs and follow direction of them while using New Hampshire’s trail system.

OHRV clubs should keep in mind that trail users may not be familiar with their trail system and sign appropriately and adequately. The Bureau of Trails (BOT) has created Trail Signing Guidelines to assist clubs in knowing where and how to post trail signs. The BOT urges all clubs to follow these guidelines and to use the signs supplied by the Bureau so that trails are uniformly marked throughout the State.

Remember to respect landowners and stay on designated trails! Without landowners' permission, there would be no trail system!
