DUBLIN, New Hampshire (April 2009)–Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide issue, on newsstands April 28 through the end of August, names New England’s best five mountain-bike trails. Yankee’s longtime contributor Todd Balf, who has ridden mountain-bike trails from New Zealand to Venezuela, picks the five best in New England.

In each issue, Yankee names the “Best 5″ in different categories. The July/August issue will name the best five sand-sculpture contests in New England.

The following five mountain-bike trails made the list:

  • Great Brook Farm State Park

Carlisle, MA: mass.gov/dcr/parks/northeast/gbfm.htm

“Twenty miles of trails beyond the red farm buildings at the entrance to this historic 1,000-acre property. Easy and fun with plenty of good diversions, from Native American sites to big-eyed Holsteins.”

  • Friends of Massabesic Biking Association Trail

Auburn, NH: fomba.com

“A network of trails with good beginning routes (such as the fire road loop around Tower Hill Pond), mixed with more challenging single-tracks, such as Sampler, Red Pine, and Moose Track.”

  • Kingdom Trails

East Burke, VT: kingdomtrails.org

“Simply put, heaven. By acclaim the best place for mountain bikers of every stripe: Half of the system’s 100-plus miles are wide, easy double-track (including VAST and River Run), and all trails are marked for difficulty.”
