Gear and Equipment
The proper gear can be the difference between an enjoyable and fun adventure, and one that is miserable, or even dangerous.
New Hampshire offers some of the most beautiful scenery and unique landscapes in the country, but most of these areas have little to no mobile phone coverage, fuel and food stops can be few and far between (or even closed for the season). Being able to get yourself out of a situation, call for help, or simply have fun while you're out depend on having the right gear for the trip.
See our gear guides for specific items that Exploring NH recommends. Some items are required to participate in our off-road trips.
