THE COURSE: What’s not to like? This 13.1 mile  single-loop scenic course travels mostly in Atkinson New Hampshire with a few miles in Salem, NH and Haverhill, Massachusetts. The course is run exclusively on rolling rural back roads crossing past conservation land, two small ponds, rolling fields of hay, stone walls, and apple orchards. It’s a beautiful course and doable for all levels.
