Northern New Hampshire has an amazing recreational resource that you may not know about called the Ammonoosuc Rail Trail.  The reclaimed rail line is now a multi-use trail that is about 20 miles one way between Woodsville and Littleton, NH.  The trail's surface is stone dust and gravel with occasional sections of chunkier ballast from the now removed train tracks.  It's a beautiful scenic route passing through woods, alongside fields, over multiple bridges and repeated views of the Ammonoosuc River.

There are a variety of spots to park, so you can tune the length of your trip to your ability and available time.  As an old rail road grade, the elevation change on the trail is minimal and gradual.  
Recently, I enjoyed a ride that was just under 20 miles from Woodsville to Lisbon and back.  I made this trip on a fat bike and that was great, but the trail is well suited to a mountain bike or gravel bike as well.  The highlights of this section of the trail are the two bridges over the Ammonoosuc River and the striking scene of the village of Bath, NH with its famous covered bridge and waterfall.  Biking the trail is fantastic, but it's a great place to walk as well.  The trail is open to ATVs, although I saw none the day I was there.  If you're in the area, get out and enjoy this truly great trail! 
If you're up for a bigger adventure, the Ammonoosuc Rail Trail is part of a longer trip that goes from Vermont to Maine called Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail.  The 83 mile route strings together rail trails, dirt roads, paved roads and bike paths to navigate across the state passing through Woodsville, Littleton, Whitefield, Gorham and on to Bethel, Maine.
