Built in 1801, Sandwich Notch Road is a historic route that connected the Waterville Valley region with the Lakes Region in the early nineteenth century. Today, the road is a little-maintained, rough gravel road that passes though beautiful woodlands that are, for the most part, devoid of houses or other development. This ride will test your strength, as it gains almost 1,300 feet in elevation, but you are rewarded with a spectacular downhill thrill on the back end of the ride. Most riders opt to spot a car and do this ride oneway, but if you’re in the mood to repeat that uphill climb on the return route and that burning feeling in your quads, go for it.
