One of the mods I've downloaded freezes up NMM and won't let me play the game or uninstall/install mods. Is there a way to manually delete my mods so that I can start fresh with NMM?

unistall the game or unistall the NMM
you can also erase the mods in the Skyrim folder

Reinstall NMM. There should be an option to where you will put the mods.

Out of curiosity, could someone answer the original question anyway?

Should be in the <drive letter>\Games\Skyrim\mods. I think it's the default setting, and it can also be changed.

You can, if you know which files the mods added. Just delete them, including the esp/esm. Mods should install files in the Data folder.

Really. Installed mod and saved mod by NMM have different directory.

Installed mod is saved in your install game directory. Typically C:\Program FIles\Skyrim\Data

Saved mods by NMM are saved in another directory, depending on your choice when you install NMM. Mine is
C:\Games\Nexus Mod Manager\Skyrim\Mods

If you don't know where yours are, you can reinstall NMM, not the game, to see in which directory NMM save mods.

Or, you could check the NMM settings, go to the Skyrim tab and see the paths there.
