Description: Chamberlain-Reynolds Memorial Forest is a 157-acre forest on the shores of beautiful Squam Lake. Trails vary from very flat and level dirt roads, to extremely challenging single-track. There are also some sections of trails that have not been maintained with bicycle riders in mind – for instance they put logs down over muddy areas that run parallel to the track – almost guaranteeing that your wheels will get caught in between the logs.
There are also some sections that even the most extreme mountain bikers will find challenging with rocks sticking up from the over-used trails.
