Hike & Bike

Biking

In Pittsburg you can explore all of the “designated roads” with mountain bikes. This includes many logging roads in the Connecticut Lakes Headwaters Region. If a gate is closed, human-powered bikes are allowed to pass them. Road biking is possible and very scenic from the Canadian border down Rt.3, but the shoulder is narrow with new cracks and bumps appearing after every winter.

In Quebec, Circuits Frontieres offers singletrack trails at Mount Hereford and in Coaticook. Bring Canadian cash to leave in the kiosk at the church and enjoy!

Hiking

Ramblewood Recommends: Taking an afternoon to follow the Cohos Trail up Covell Mountain directly from the campground with stops for raspberries along the way. (2+ Hours)

At Ramblewood The Cohos Trail travels behind the campground and meanders through woods, near meadows, and to the summit of Covell Mountain with views of 1st Connecticut Lake and Mt. Magalloway. The trip takes 2+ hours round trip, and can be continued to the Round Pond trail. Parking is available at the office. We also have a network of walking trails (about 3 miles) around the campground with maps also available at the office.

In Pittsburg The Falls in the River trail (parking and trailhead by Second Connecticut Lake Dam on Rt. 3) is a flat trail of about 2 miles with a nice, remote waterfall at the end. Little Hellgate Falls is located off of Magalloway Road, and has a beautiful winding trail next to a stream with a waterfall at the end

*Local summer recreation maps, Pittsburg hiking guides and Cohos Trail Guides are available at our office.
