There’s Nothing Like a Good Nordic Trail

You can always hear the crunch of the snow more clearly without the whir of the lifts getting in the way. And thanks to the 20km of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails at King Pine, you can hear a whole lot of that satisfying sound. With access to Purity Spring XC & Snowshoe Reserve, you’ll find trails that wind through the forests around Purity Lake, traverse the grounds of Purity Spring Resort and twist through tall pines in the adjacent Hoyt/Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary. Our grooming is minimal, our trails are open from sunrise to sunset and our terrain ranges from intermediate to advanced. Cross-country ski rentals are available at the King Pine Rental Shop. And Nordic trail passes and tickets can be obtained online or from the King Pine base lodge.

We do not allow dogs on our Nordic trails on weekends or during holiday periods. However, well-behaved dogs can join their owners for adventures midweek during non-holiday periods. We simply ask that owners have a leash ready when passing others and are considerate of other trail users’ experiences.

THE SKINNY ON FAT BIKING

Fat biking offers both a cardio and a balance challenge—making it one of the best wintertime workouts. And at King Pine, we allow fat-tire biking on many of our Nordic trails. However, you must have a valid Nordic trail pass and comply with all our fat biking policies.

Fat Biking Policies
  • A trail pass is required at all times.
  • Fat biking inside NH Audubon is prohibited. Please stay off all Audubon trails.
  • Use common sense, and do not bike on soft snow. Please monitor weather and conditions, and do not ride when the snow is soft. The snow is too soft if:
    • The tire rut is 1” or deeper
    • You are having difficulty riding in a straight line
    • You need to push your bike
  • Tires must be wider than 3.5” and tire pressure must be less than 10 psi.
  • Bikers must yield to all other users. Cross-country skiers don’t have brakes, so bikers are responsible for staying out of their way. Watch out for skiers’ poles—they are fragile and expensive.
  • Purity Spring Resort and King Pine Ski Area may restrict fat-tire bike use when appropriate.
  • The use of fat bikes on our trail system is best during off-peak trail usage.
