1. You don’t have to drive. Off highway recreational vehicles (OHRVs) come in all shapes and sizes. If you’d rather not be the master of your own machine, you can rent ones that fit two, four or six people at a time, allowing you to sit back, enjoy the ride, and stay fairly close to your comfort zone.

2. Doing something new is good for you. This outing may not be your Everest, but the stress-relieving rush of adrenaline and feeling of accomplishment you’ll have after your ATVing day is done will be super satisfying.

3. It’ll be an unforgettable adventure. As Amelia Earhart once said, “Adventure is worthwhile in itself.” Whether you just try it once or come back for more year after year, ATVing will have you and your friends fondly recalling the experience for a lifetime.

4. It’s an incredible way to see the state. New Hampshire is the ATVing epicenter of New England. Its vast network of well-maintained trails spanning over 1,200 miles including Ride the Wilds, allow you to tour the state in the most unique way possible. You can be immersed in natural bliss and taking a refreshing dip in a river one moment, then crossing quaint covered bridges and stopping through charming towns for a bite to eat, the next.

5. New Hampshire’s soul-soothing beauty. Approximately 85 percent of the state is covered in lush forest full of geological wonders formed over millions of years. This perhaps helps explain the astonishing allure of The Great North Woods. Being out in all that flawless fresh air and raw, pristine wilderness will stop you in your ATV tracks, guaranteed. No need to fly to Alaska to experience nature’s paradise. It’s all within a scenic road trip to New Hampshire.
