The use of Musher is to be defined as “any person engaging in a dog powered sport, be it with a scooter, kick sled, cross country skis, dog sled, motorized training rig, etc.”
NH Statewide Trails Advisory Committee is aware of the potential for dangers of snowmobiles and dogsleds sharing the same trails all over the state. The committee strongly encourages us to unify, educate and protect ourselves on and off the trails. The NHMA enables us to have a group to voice our concerns, disseminate information to all types of trail users, to educate ourselves, and protect our present privileges.
Everyone is important to this cause. Recreational skijorers and weekend mushers are just as important as professional racers. We all need the support of the NH Statewide Trails Advisory Committee and the use of these trails to pursue a sport we all love.
Please join us in our efforts to make our trails safer for ourselves and our dogs!
The Franklin Falls Reservoir trails remain closed at this time. Flooding brought pool levels higher than anticipated leaving much of the trail system with unforeseen damages. Profile Falls Recreation Area will remain closed at this time due to the amount of ice left from the floods. We are actively monitoring the situation and will update as things change.
