Coincidence, I had lunch at the muddy moose yesterday.
I love northern NH especially off season. More and more I enjoy the rides north of the notch.
I often go to Colebrook and take Rt 26 to Bethel on the Maine border, then rt 113 at Gilead through Evans Notch
back to south Conway. It is a great loop through some of the best NH has to offer.
Take note: rt 113 is seasonal, it will be barred after the first real snow.
And yes, I did go through Canterbury yesterday. I often take rt 132 north to avoid the super slab.
