      The Trails:
      The Pemigewasset Riverside Park, on the Holderness side of the river, has long been known to mountain bikers as the "Gyroscope" Trails, or "Gyro". This trail network is unique in New Hampshire for its absence of rocks - making it a true beginner network. The winding and twisting singletrack is a great place to develop your turning skills.

      Jump Area:
      The jump area contains advanced and expert features. Please use caution.

      Getting There:
      Please park at Fox Park or the Plymouth Pump Track & Skate Park, and ride across the river to get to Gyro. Railroad Square and Green Street provide a safe, low-traffic route around Main Street for bikers to get from the Pump Track to the Bridge.

      Support Pemi Valley NEMBA
      The Pemi Valley Chapter of New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA) maintains these trail networks and the pump track, along with the trail signs and maps. If you enjoy these trails, please join our chapter and join us at trail work events. Your membership dues support our work. To become a member, visit hhtp://www.nemba.org/join .

      Thanks To Our Partners And Landowners
      The Gyroscope trails are made possible by the landowners. The Holderness Conservation Commission owns and maintains the kiosk area off of South River Street. The Holderness School owns much of the land and has generously allowed the use of mountain bikes on the trails. The school administration has asked users to download and complete a waiver and submit it to [email protected]. Thank you for your cooperation. The waiver can be found here: http://nemba.org/news/holderness-school-waiver.
