Where Are the Best Off-Road Trails Near Me?

If you’re interested in putting your new lifted Jeep to the test, you’ll need a rugged off-roading trail to do it on. Explore some of the best Keene, NH trails with Keene Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, as well as a few we think are worth the drive if you want to explore outside the Brattleboro area, then grab your friends and head out for a serious thrill ride!

Field and Forest Recreation Center

While many of the trails you’ll find in New Hampshire cater to ATVs and bikes, the trails at Field and Forest Recreation Center are open to Jeeps and other off-road vehicles as well. The site caters to groups and events, so you’ll have to book it in advance, but if you have friends who want to get a little mud on their tires, you can schedule an entire weekend away at this private campground.

Little Monadnock Mountain Trail

This slightly difficult 2.7-mile trail located in Rhododendron State Park offers plenty to see and do. The route takes drivers out and back and covers an elevation gain of 695 feet through dense forest with stunning vistas and wildflowers. If you want to avoid getting stuck, the best times to explore this trail are from April to October. When you come off the trail, why not head to the Monadnock Food Co-Op for a warm cup of soup or a hearty sandwich? Or, if that doesn’t suit your fancy, check out some of the other great restaurants in Keene, NH.

Cheshire Rail Trail

This moderately trafficked 20.6-mile point-to-point Keene, NH trail takes drivers up 1,177 feet in moderately difficult terrain for an exhilarating driving experience. The trail’s location makes it accessible year-round and provides an opportunity to view a variety of wild animals in their natural habitat.

View Loop

The View Loop to Purgatory Brook is a short, lightly trafficked Jeep off-road trail near Mont Vernon, NH. The location and terrain are perfect for new off-roaders, but the 2.8-mile trail with its 436-foot elevation change offers challenges that even seasoned drivers will appreciate.

Kelly Camp Trail

If you’re searching for a moderately trafficked trail good for all skill levels, then the Kelly Camp Trail near Bennington, VT is a suitable choice. This 3.1-mile trail is kid-friendly, great for seeing wildlife and wildflowers, and with an elevation change of just 291 feet, it won’t be too tough on your new Jeep. And, when you take advantage of the Jeep Wrangler towing capacity, you’ll be able to bring your camper to the Camp Kelly Campground so you have a comfortable place to sleep after a long day of off-roading.

If you don’t have a Jeep of your own yet, contact Keene Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to schedule a test drive in the models you’re interested in, and we’ll have you hitting Swanzey streets in your dream Jeep SUV in no time.
