      Kingman Farm is a property of the University of New Hampshire in Durham. It's fun place to ride. In its 335 acres there are enough easy doubletracks and woods roads to keep a beginner happy, while at the same time there are a few hills and some really fun singletracks to keep more advanced riders huffing and puffing. There are many more difficult places to ride than Kingman Farm, but few that are more fun.

      The University of New Hampshire Mountain Bike Team trains here. And someone, maybe them, has done a lot of trail work. One of the many hilly singletracks that you'll encounter has been bermed, shelved and switchbacked in a highly professional manner to prevent water from eroding the trail.

      My guess is that when the mountain bike team is training that they do multiple laps up this hill. Twice is usually enough for me.

      Expect to spend a couple of hours exploring here. And then expect to come back. Kingman farm is far too much fun to only ride once.

      All levels of riders can enjoy most of the farm's trails. None require any advanced skills or a high degree of fitness. Better riders of course will cover ground faster. But unless they're fixated on riding challenging terrain, even very good riders will have a lot of fun here.

      Recently the UNH Office of Woodlands has been working with the Madbury Conservation Commission and the Southern NH chapter of NEMBA to close and rehabilitate unauthorized trails. These efforts have been pretty successful and if you see a sign telling you that a trail is being rehabilitated, stay off it.

      Cautions:

      The area immediately surrounding the farm buildings is closed to bikes. You may encounter kids and unleashed dogs. And they are very curious. Also, yield to equestrians when you see them.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Access Info:
      From the intersection of route 4 and route 108 head south into Durham. When you get to the center turn right on Madbury Road. Go about a mile and a half and turn right on Route 155. In a few hundred yards you will see the entrance to Kingman Farm on your left. Go another 100 yards and park in the small dirt lot on your left. Alternatively you can turn left when you get to Route 155 and then take your first right on Town Hall Road. Just after the Library you'll see the Town Hall and there's a trailhead behind it.
