Welcome to the Dirt Donkeys Riding Club
Washington and Stoddard NH
The Dirt Donkeys Riding Club is the NH state approved trade name of the OHRV club founded as part of the Wild Lake Association.
The Wild lake Association is a 501(C)3 charitable organization owning 404+ acres of land in the towns of Washington and Stoddard NH.
The property we own, and maintain, boarders Valley Road in Washington and Stoddard NH. There are 3 Primary access points.
Two are on Valley Road and are marked currently with Wild Lake signage. Both are also marker with Trail Parking signs. The third access is off Barden Pond Road and is shown on snowmobile maps. We completed a complete GPS Mapping of the trail system on 6/28/20 .
We received signage from the state and have posted Our trails and parking areas.
Our outer loop trail has a section that is current closed by a abutting property owner. We are working on a rerouting solution and have marked the new trail. It is Still pretty rough and not ready for UTV’s just yet. It is passable for ATV’s and single track . We have volunteers working on widening and moving some of the terrain obstacles.
It is important that all riders keep on the trails and respect the property of the owners who provide us with access to their property.
The club promotes and encourages OHRV activities in the towns of Washington and Stoddard NH, specifically on property owned by the Wild Lake Association and its abutters, who allow access for OHRV activities.
We maintain trails on the 404+ acres of land as well as trails with permission from land owners which provides the opportunity for riders of all skill levels to come and ride. Our “Figure 8” area , located on Jim and Terry Lane (One fo the entrances to the property), is just the place to
come for new riders to learn how to ride safely, in various conditions, and allows for close supervision..
We are working On a GPS trail map along with the Town of Washington to provide a complete map of where UTV’s and ATV’s are allowed. We hope to have them By the end of the summer.
The town of Washington has a OHRV ordinance that allows UTV’s on most town roads. Please review the Town of Washington OHRV information in the link below.
Please note UTV‘S and ATVS, registered as OHRV’s, are not currently allowed on Route 31.
