On a Saturday you are talking an all day trip especially if you plan to eat while up in Gorham. Saturday’s see extremely heavy use of C19, and while going up in the morning may be pleasant if groomed the night before, plan on a longer and bumpier ride home anytime after noon. It’s doable, what I consider an easy to moderate ride, and quite fun with fantastic views especially up in the notch!

A group of us left the north side of Broad Bay and travelled to C19, then on to Evens Notch. We spent about a half hour looking at the notch then headed back. On the return trip we saved some time by crossing Silver Lake. The trip killed most of a day and we didn't tarry much. No lunch break.

2 years ago 3 of us rode from pine river pond in East wakefield up C19 through Evans notch to gorham.  We started at about 7:00 am.  Had lunch in gorham mid day. Then west to Franconia notch and south through Plymouth.  Hopped on winni and then to Wolfeboro back to wakefield.

we were home by 7:00 pm or so.

it was a Friday, the route we took includes a lot of miles on rail lines.  Trail reports did not include any language like “rails showing”.
 

So to answer your question, absolutely you can make it to gorham and back in a day.  If you do it on a weekend leaving very early is recommended. And be prepared for some bumps on the way south.
