Littleton Off-Road Riders, Inc.
The Littleton Off Road Riders is a non-profit organization which maintains a 75-mile+ year round trail system throughout the Littleton area. This system connects to those of the towns around us including: Whitefield, Lisbon, Bethlehem, Monroe and Dalton. The trails are used for many purposes - some include snowmobiling, dog sledding, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, all terrain vehicles, and cross-country skiing. Littleton's trail system would not be possible without the landowners who give their permission to cross their properties, business owners, and members of the Littleton Off Road Riders who put in hundreds of hours each year to keep the trail system open. Membership also helps us with the costs of trail maintenance and the purchasing of grooming equipment. We invite everyone to use and enjoy the trails of Littleton. All we ask in return is that people act responsibly, and obey the requests of the landowners. If you have used Littleton's trail system, and would like to help contribute towards the maintenance costs, club membership dues are only $10.00 a year.
