Biking in New England: The Best Places to Go

New England is known for its vast number of historic and scenic bike trails, drawing thousands of riders each year to the five states that comprise the New England region (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island). If you’re one of these riders, or you’d like to be, there are plenty of exciting opportunities to take your bike out on the road in New England. Here are five of the best places to go biking in New England.

Province Lands Bike Trail, Cape Cod
The 5.45-mile circle of this path, which is on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, features three alternative spurs that range in length from.25 to 1.1 miles. Although the path itself is attractive and goes through woodlands, sand dunes, and even cranberry bogs, only experienced cyclists should attempt it due to its difficulty. The Metacomet Trail, Connecticut: There are plenty of reasons why people enjoy biking on this trail.
For starters, there’s a chance you’ll see local wildlife such as deer and turkey along the way; you’ll also have a great time exploring all the different ecosystems including forests, wetlands, meadows, mountainside cliffs; not to mention all the historic sites like Indian burial grounds.

Stowe Recreation Path
There are plenty of bike trails in Vermont for riders of every skill level, but when we’re looking for a simpler ride, we adore this 5.5-mile road that ends in the Vermont town of Stowe. It follows a river and features scenery that beautifully highlights the state’s natural splendour. For an even easier ride, we recommend hopping on the Robert Frost Bike Path in Franconia Notch State Park. The path is only 1 mile long and leads you up an incline to a beautiful scenic overlook of Franconia Ridge.
