Gateway to Ride the Wilds

Club Info

Ride. Respect. Have Fun.

The Kilkenny Trail Riders ATV club was formed in February of 2013 and currently has about 100 members. Headquartered in Lancaster NH, the Kilkenny Trail Riders take advantage of everything U.S. Rt. 3 has to offer its members, from local businesses including gas stations, restaurants and lodging, to the convenience of being the southern most entry point of the Ride the Wilds Trail system offering up over 1000 miles of ATV trails.

All of the clubs members are advocates of the sport and are firm supporters of responsible riding and land use.

    Am trying to get info on your club and the whole NH riding system. How many miles does your club offer to ride. We live in NY so we are considering a trip to NH, but only if we have full info on areas your club has and how many miles.

    Can you help with info.

      Nancy: Directly in Lancaster I’m guessing we have maybe 20-30 miles of trails but we connect to over 1000 miles.
      From Lancaster, in about 10 miles you can be in Groveton from which you can head North all the way to Pittsburg, East
      over to Jericho, etc. You can’t go directly East (Through Jefferson) yet but we are hoping for that soon.

      I’d highly recommend staying in Lancaster or if you want to East in Gorham/Berlin. Pittsburg is another 1.5hrs
      North of Lancaster and has limited accommodations, etc. North Country ATV Club (out of Groveton, just North of Lancaster)
      is the oldest club in the area and has 150+ miles of interconnected trails of all skill levels. Jericho State park is
      ridable from there and is also very nice. Jericho has many skill levels, from wide open fire roads to Double Black Diamond
      hard core difficult trails. There are also campgrounds on “Ride the Wilds”, so, if you were so inclined you could start out in Lancaster,
      ride, and camp for a week and never use your car if you want. Most of the towns allow ATV’s on the streets to local businesses.
      Jericho tends to get crowded on weekends. Between 1,000 and 1,200 miles of interconnected trails. Drive up here, unload, and don’t use
      your car/truck and trailer until you are ready to go home. 🙂

      If this isn’t enough info, let me know and I can PM you with a phone number and we can talk. I’m not exaggerating a bit when I say
      you won’t run out of trails or miles.

    Where can i stay and pick up the trail from the room? As i see on the Ride the Wilds map, it looks like the only trail goes to Groveton. Is there anymore? Thank you

      If you stay in Lancaster you can ride out of any of the hotels (Not the Cabot yet I think), but all
      the ‘in-town’ hotels you can ride right out of (Coos Motor in, etc.). There is a trail (Really riding
      the sides of the roads) from Lancaster to Groveton and that connects to the rest of the Wild the Wilds

    Hi Guys,

    This is Brandon Giuda, owner of Beaver Trails Campground. I am excited that the trail is now connected to the campground, and am wondering if there is anything I can do to help with the trail on the 50 acres. I will have some equipment at the campground this summer to work on a new road.

    I want to publicize the trail connection, but when I look at the online NH Trail Map, it still shows Lancaster as being not connected. Anything we can do about that?

      I’ll forward this message to our Trail Master. Help is always appreciated. Also, I’m not sure
      about the on-line map, but Dalton Mountain Motorsports just got some new maps in that do show that
      we are connected to and part of Ride the Wilds.

      I’m not aware of any change in status, but we haven’t had our first meeting of the season yet so I really don’t know.

      Without Page Hill reopening, no.
