Make tracks to the Lakes Region this winter
With 7,000 miles of volunteer-maintained snowmobile trails, the area’s frozen lakes and remote hillsides that are unreachable in the warmer months become accessible with a blanket of snow to anyone with a snowmobile.
If you are an avid snowmobiler, or just beginning, New Hampshire caters to snowmobiling enthusiasts of all levels of expertise.
