Parker Mountain Trails in Littleton New Hampshire is a well kept secret
Parker Mountain Trails, also known as PRKR MTN Trails, in Littleton NH is a community managed 23 mile (and growing) network of hand built trails designed for mountain biking, hiking, and running. In winter, these Littleton NH trails are great for winter fat biking, cross country skiing, and winter hiking. These mountain bike trails are so awesome, yet only the locals and those “in the know” are aware of them. Some say that this is one of the best trail systems in New Hampshire. And it’s just 14 minutes away from Rabbit Hill Inn.
Parker Mountain trail system gives you access to the summit of Parker Mountain (the highest elevation in Littleton). But you will find the grandest views at “Linda’s Lookout,” a cliff with a breathtaking view of the entire northern Presidential Range of the White Mountains.
A new addition to the PRKR MTN trails is the pump track. The PRKR pump track is designed for those who want to hone their biking skills. Much like a BMX or motorcross track, it sharpens riders skills and provides a fun and exciting track experience.
