Rob Brook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Rob Brook Road is a gated Forest Service road that provides excellent access to the forest south of Sawyer Pond, Green’s Cliff, and Owl’s Cliff. While riding this road’s packed dirt and gravel surface you might encounter a logging vehicle or two, but usually the road is free of traffic, making it a great place for those seeking a long but fairly easy ride through quiet White Mountain scenery. This trip also includes an option for a few miles of exciting single-track up and around Birch Hill, as well as an option for a few miles of hiking to Sawyer Pond—one of the more scenic spots in the White Mountains (due to heavy hiker traffic, bikes are not allowed on the Sawyer Pond Trail). As a loop trip this ride ends up with 3.0 miles of riding on the Kancamagus Highway and Bear Notch Road. However, the crossing of the Swift River just prior to reaching the Kancamagus can be impossible in high water, necessitating a return trip on Rob Brook Road, that would make the trip 17.4 miles long."
