Snowmobile Trip/Cabin Rental Pittsburg, NH

 

We headed up to a cabin we rented in Pittsburg New Hampshire on Friday night after most of the traffic cleared and it was a nice ride. We had our new two-place snowmobile trailer with our new snowmobiles, and a third snowmobile in the back of our pickup. We took Rt. 93 North to Rt. 3 North which lead us almost right to the cabin we rented on the First Connecticut Lake in Pittsburg, NH. We got to the cabin and realized there was much more snow there than there was just 3 hours South. Pittsburg NH was the only town in the state that offered 100% open snowmobile trails at the time of this trip.

The log cabin was perfect! Plenty of room to park our truck, trailer and snowmobiles, with plenty of room left over. The log cabin was open concept, very quiet and had everything you could possibly need, right down to the silverware, pots, pans, cups, coffee cups, microwave a gas cooking stove, TV / DVD player and fully furnished. We got the woodstove going and headed to bed early to get an early start in the morning on our snowmobiles.

The next morning we got up and had breakfast and hit the trails. Due to the lack of snow in New Hampshire this year, we were unable to use the trail that leads out of the property through the woods and had to go across the ice. The ice was plenty thick for riding and it was only a short ride South on the First Connecticut Lake where we got on the groomed snowmobile trail system. We took trail 138, trail 139, trail 140, trail 142 and trail #5 in Pittsburg on Saturday. After being out all day, we headed back to the cabin for dinner and a movie. We headed to bed shortly after and all agreed to ride our snowmobiles to the Pittsburg, NH / Canadian border in the morning.

On Sunday morning, we rode to trail #5 and took that trail all the way to the Canadian border and back, for a total of 120 miles for the weekend. Not bad at all for not having any snow at home!

Fast Facts About This Trip:
The Good:
  • Parking is excellent and right next the cabin. You can pull right up to load and unload your luggage!
  • The view is unbelievable
  • The sunset and sunrises are beautiful at the lake
  • The cabin we rented was clean and well-equipped
  • The cabin rental cost is the lowest compared to neighboring cabins.
  • The snowmobile trail system in Pittsburg NH was well maintained.
The Bad:
  • Driving snowmobiles on the ice, but this seemed to be a temporary problem due to lack of snow. The snowmobile trail leading out of the property needed more snow to fill in the holes on the trail.
  • The cabin is so nice, you may not want to go snowmobiling. ;)
The Ugly:
  • N/A
Tips to Remember:
  • Do not drive on the roads. The Pittsburg police and NH Fish and Game officers there will give you a ticket.
  • The NH Fish and Game was also very much watching for unregistered snowmobiles on the trails and at the Young's Store and Gas station on Rt. 3.
  • Caution: A snowmobile trail groomer travels at an average speed of only 5-8 MPH.  Snowmobile riders need to use "extreme caution" on the trails and always be on the lookout for groomers.  Many of the grooming machines are exceptionally wide and long, so you as the snowmobile driver need to give the right-of-way, and always slow down when approaching a groomer.

  • One thing we noticed is that most people are courteous on the trails, but there are a few people who are just plain dangerous and rude. Passing on trails before giving slower snowmobiles a change to pull over, and passing in opposing directions at high speeds is not only dangerous, but a sure sign of stupidity! There are a few that think the rules don't apply to them, so be sure to watch out for these few weak-minded snowmobile drivers!

  • Most cell phones do not work in Pittsburg NH... There is a payphone at Young's Store though.
  • Bring your own towels and toiletries to the cabin as these are things that are not provided.
