OUR LANDOWNERS: Please respect all landowners wishes while riding. Snowmobilers in Maine are the guests of Maine landowners who allow access. It is every snowmobiler's responsibility to protect that access by acting responsibly.

STAY OFF PLOWED ROADS: Snowmobilers who illegally snowmobile on plowed paper company roads threaten access for everyone,
and endanger themselves and the employees operating vehicles on those roads. Do not ride on these plowed roads, and do not park your vehicles and trailers on these roads.

STAY OFF THE BLUEBERRY BARRENS AND OTHER CROPLAND: Snowmobilers who illegally ride on blueberry barrens or other cropland are creating problems for the landowners, potential damage to their crops and threatening recreational access for everyone. Stay on marked trails.

BORDER CROSSINGS: Increased concern and security at our borders calls for strict attention to the law. For information about crossing our border with Canada, see the Border Guide supplied by the United States Border Patrol. (.pdf format, viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader - a free download ).

ATVs and other motorized vehicles: It is against the law to operate an ATV (or a dune buggy, 4 wheel drive vehicle, motorcycle or any other motor vehicle) on a snowmobile trail funded by the Club/Municipal grant program at any time of the year, unless the landowners have granted permission to do so.

WHEN CROSSING RAILROAD TRACKS be careful not to spin snow onto the tracks. Over time this snow builds up creating a ramping effect that has caused train derailment. These rail lines are privately owned and can be closed, which would fracture the trail system. Stop and look both ways at all railroad crossings.

Snowmobile Trail Conditions Path left behind the Chapman groomer Trail 74
NOTICE TO RIDERS: SLOW DOWN: There are some areas of the Maine trail system where wood harvesting operations are underway. In a few cases, rather than close the trail some companies have opted to allow riders to share short sections of the plowed road. It is against the law to operate a snowmobile on plowed roads, so in these few cases the allowed section of road would be well marked with signage. Some riders are going way too fast in these areas. SLOW DOWN. A close call or accident with the operators of trucks and heavy equipment in the area will likely lead to loss of access. Thank you.

Reports reflect observations of MSA family and business members who clear, sign, groom and ride the trails of Maine. Local chambers of commerce, businesses and snowmobile clubs are a good source for additional information on trails in their area.

Trail Reports are provided to the public courtesy of the members of the Maine Snowmobile Association. Reports are accepted from MSA family and business members, groomers/projects. Please include your name and the name of your MSA club when submitting the report.

If you post trail conditions on your MSA club or supporting business web site and wish to have your updates posted and linked from this page, drop us an email with your request. (It would be very helpful if we received notice when the report on your site has been updated.)

GREATER KATAHDIN REGION

Katahdin Region:2/23: "It still looks like winter here and there is snow on the ground. We had some warming up and cooling down this week which made for icy conditions on the trails yesterday. Last night we groomed our entire system, sections of trails are still icy as the temps are still cold 12 degrees right now, temps warm up to 30 later in the day so trails will soften out as the day moves on, pay attention as you ride as things can happen fast, for experienced and inexperienced riders.
Last Night the Twin Pines Snowmobile Club Groomed the following trails: Grant Brook Rd to ITS 85/86 Penobscot Pond; ITS 85/86 The State Road; 112/Logan Pond Trail; 85/86 to Hurd Pond; and the Stacyville Rd ITS 85/86 to Whetstone; 112/Stratton trail; Wild Kingdom Trail; In town Millinocket Trails and the South Twin Connector and ITS 85/86 The Pole Line. Note the Pole Line ITS 85/86 has some washouts that have opened up again so ride with caution. We are grooming again tonight. As always, ride right, ride safe, mind those corners and pay attention on Bridges! River Driver's Restaurant is open from 7am to 9pm, with hot food and gas for sleds. https://www.neoc.com/snowmobile-trail-report-maine, https://www.facebook.com/snowmobilinginmaine

Jo-Mary Riders Update: last night into the morning we groomed / 109N to 86, Black Pond, PP x-over, 111, B-Pond, The Parkway, Ragged Mtn. including up to the Fire Tower, 109/111 x-over, Downtown connector, and the 109S toward Medway. Most of the trails have good snow cover, some thin spots, some patches of ice here + there, did not see or hear about any wash outs. The groomers chopped up the hard pack and laid it down flat." Jo-Mary Riders SC

Note: There are some errors on the 2018 Katahdin Region Snowmobile Map. Contrary to what it shows on the 2018 Trail Map, 5 Lakes Lodge does not serve food. Also the Northern Timber Cruisers clubhouse is actually located in Millinocket (the incorrect location of the NTC on the map is in Brownville).

GREATER MOOSEHEAD REGION

Rockwood:2/21: "Trails are changing fast out there, so please stay off if at all possible until temps cool down. The lake has a lot of slush on it this morning. Wet areas on trails will be opening up so watch for hazards until we get more cold and snow to fill them in. I know its vacation week but riding trails in these warm conditions could ruin them for the season so PLEASE stay off till it turns cold again , Thank you ." Blue Ridge Riders snowmobile club, Facebook page

Rockwood :2/20: "All area trails are good. Expect softer conditions until Thursday. ITS 88 was groomed from Greenville/Forks intersection to the Jackman intersection Sunday night. All area trails have been groomed. Our groomers will be out again on Thursday night after the warm up is over.
The Moosehead Trail (RT66) is now opened and marked from MT Kineo directly to The Birches. We have fuel and oil. The Birches restaurant and lounge is opened every day 7 AM until at least 9 PM.

Shirley: 2/18: "What a great week for school vacation as far as the weather goes. The only thing wrong is the warm temps are not a snow groomer's friend. We will be out grooming as weather permits. Trials are good conditions but could use more snow and cooler temperatures." Shirley Bog Trail Busters, Facebook page

Greenville:2/16: "Our groomers were out again last night laying down some beautiful trails! Our plan is to groom every night through this weekend and next week for school vacation. We're hoping that the temps don't get as warm as forecasted for early next week. The trails will be very busy so please ride safe and ride right." - Moosehead Riders SC Facebook page .

ROUTE 201 CORRIDOR

The Forks:2/23: "Trails took a beating with the recent warm weather. Seasonal temperatures have returned and groomers are out doing what we can with what we have. Good news is that the trails have solidified FLAT. Bad news is that they are very hard and icy, with some bare ground in places. Trails are all passable. Some sections are good, some are poor where you have to "bob & weave" to stay on snow. Certainly not mid-winter conditions but, if you want to get out and ride and enjoy the scenery, you can. Just be careful with the ice.
ITS 86 FROM BERRYS STORE HEADING EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE In town section is beat up, but passable. Once out of town just a mile, things improve somewhat. Some bare spots and ice till the Boise Road. Hodges Road section around Mosquito Mountain has a number of bare spots and ice. Again, all passable with some "bobbing & weaving". The 1 mile Power Line section near Moxie Pond is rough. There is a 1 mile section of plowed road around Moxie Pond.... very icy and scratchy through there. Snow conditions improve from Moxie Pond all the way to the ITS 88 intersection.
ITS 87 HEADING SOUTH TOWARD BINGHAM Some corners on the Divide Road section are getting bare. The riding up to Moore's Bog is fair. From Moore's Bog south is thin in spots with ice. The 1 mile windswept section on the south side of Moxie Mountain is bare and icy, but passable off to the side.
BALD MOUNTAIN TRAIL Still has good snow cover. Groomed with nice going all the way through.
PLEASANT POND TRAIL Still has good snow cover. Groomed all the way to the Bingham Wind Farm Trail.
CARATUNK SPUR Open and groomed.
KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL Open all the way from Northern Outdoors to West Forks. Just a very few bare corners, but icy. The big hill off the Flood Road is very icy. BECAUSE OF THIS IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT ONLY EXPERIENCED RIDERS WITH PICKS USE THIS TRAIL." - Jim Yearwood, Forks Area Trails Club Northern Outdoors, Facebook page
For day riders, there is a FREE PARK & RIDE LOT at Northern Outdoors on Route 201. The lot is large, well plowed and has plenty of room for trailers. Groomed access to all trails. The lot is marked with a large sign on Route 201. Trail maps, 91 octane ethanol-free gas, and food are available at Northern Outdoors.

Jackman:2/22: "All trails are open. The conditions are hard, flat and good it may be icy please use caution, especially when traveling over any water. Unplowed woods roads make for good riding in conditions like this. Remember quite a few trail changes, so ask your host if you are unsure." - Border Riders Sportsman Club - View more details at club website linked above

Jackman-Moose River:2/22: "The temperatures did drop after the warmer weather and rain. Some riders reporting in that in town are all ice or some bare spots but as you get out of town, trails are fair to good to the Border, Rockwood and Pittston. This is only impressions from a few riders. Our groomers will go out later today and assess the trails. Use extreme caution on curves. We need some snow, hopefully coming in this weekend.
Reminder: stay off wood plantations and plowed roads. There were reports of sleds on the Demo and Moose River roads. Please do not ride on plowed roads (used for logging operations) unless the ITS is sharing a part of this road.
To see more information or trail details, you can visit the Border Riders website or their Page on Facebook. Remember to support the clubs who maintain the trails you ride!" View reports on individual trails at Jackman Moose River Region Chamber of Commerce web site

Jackman:2/22: "'COLD TEMPERATURES ARE BACK! THE TRAILS ARE OKAY! THEY WILL BE ON THE ICY SIDE UNTIL WE GET SOME MORE SNOW. A LITTLE SNOW IS EXPECTED TODAY AND MORE ON SUNDAY. Cole temperatures are back! The trails are okay! They will be on the icy side until we get some more snow. A little snow is expected today and more on Sunday.
NORTH TO CANADA:Good, once you get out of town
SOUTH TO PARLIN AND FORKS Fair to Good
PITTSTON FARM: Good after you get out of the first miles leaving town.
CLUB TRAIL TO BORDER RIDERS. Open from lake to clubhouse. ... NOT GOING TO THE BORDER THIS WAY BECAUSE OF LOGGING OPERATION.
Rockwood: Good" Bishop's Motel report. See more trails and lodging info at web site linked above

Anson-North Anson:2/22: "Carrabasett River crossing checked and passable, use caution. ITS 84 groomed from Solon to New Portland Hill. scratchers recommended due to hard packed trails." - Mike, Anson-North Anson SC

Bingham:2/21 : "Temperatures picked up today but will revert back to lows in the teens and twenties starting this evening. Light snow expected on Friday, more substantial snow forecast for Sunday.
All Valley Riders SC trails were groomed at the end of last weekend and are in good shape. There is still the occasional loose rock exposed so be mindful. Groomers went out last night and will continue throughout the week.
ITS 87 north toward the Forks is thin for the first 8mi but has good coverage and is as flat as can be considering conditions. From that point to where we meet the Forks is flat and fast with excellent coverage.
ITS 87 south is groomed and in fantastic shape all the way to the Solon Dam. Pretty rough and thin if continuing toward the Solon Superette, but should be taken care of with 1 pass from the groomer.
ITS 84 east toward Athens was groomed and fantastic all the way to the end of Mahoney Hill. IRON GATE RD... It is being groomed again this year!!! This trail hasn't been groomed for about a week but is fairly flat with excellent coverage. If you have ever checked this trail out we highly recommend it. From ITS 84 at the end of Mahoney Hill Rd it will loop you around to the Wind Mill trail intersection and connector back to ITS 87. Sunshine trail to Withee Pond trail is in fantastic shape as always. When continuing back to ITS 87 you will notice that the Town Line Rd did finally get plowed down to Dead Water but still has good coverage on it.
The other club connector closest to town has also been recently groomed and in great shape, offering our tightest and windiest trail in our club system.
The Wind Mill trail is still in good shape as well. Grooming efforts flattened the trail back out and make this a great route. The very top has gotten thin, but is covered. It is however very icy at Tower 30, which is the big lookout bluff most people are familiar with.
Breakneck Ridge trail has been being groomed and I was told was in great shape! See you on the trails!" North Country Rivers web site, Facebook page

West Forks, Parlin Pond:2/9: "We finally got some much needed snow on our trail system. The area ended up with around 10-12 inches of powdery snow. We spent yesterday grooming out the system and starting to get the trails set up for the weekend. The trails are very loose because the snow was so dry so it'll take a couple days of riding and grooming to tighten them up. The Coburn Summit Trail was groomed to the halfway point and bladed all the way to the Summit. There will be heavy traffic going up this weekend so please use extra caution when on the summit trail. More snow is in the forecast for Sat/Sun. It's only going to get better!" - Joe, Coburn Summit Riders

Solon:2/9: "We received about a foot of fresh snow yesterday. Groomers have been out restoring trail conditions since yesterday and will continue working on Solon trails through Saturday. Please use caution day and night and watch for grooming equipment in the trail." - View reports on individual trails at Solon Snow Hawks

Madison:2/3: "I will be grooming the north end of club trail 27 we just got all the trees cleared so we can go through. So if your out and about ride safe ride right. The trails are in really great shape I didn't see any issues last night when we were out." Abnaki Sno-Riders

RANGELEY/BETHEL/GREATER RUMFORD AREA/WESTERN MAINE

Rangeley:2/22: " I just got off the phone with Lee, The Groomers are still out this morning he is super excited at how good the trails came back to life. There are thin spots on a lot of the Intown trails and access points but that is to be expected with the amount of traffic those trails see. As you work your way north 3 to 4 miles out of the town trails the trails are great. He says it's hard to believe that it was over 50 degrees up here on Wednesday with how well these trails came back. Don't get us wrong they are not perfect considering the weather we had with the amount of rain we had things looking really good. He says pack your bags and get up here! Please join the club for under $40 a season you can help support hungry piston bully in Rangeley!" Rangeley Lakes SC Facebook page Rangeley Lakes SC.

Bethel-Greenwood-Woodstock:2/22: "WARNING: Trail 13 South out of Bethel by Alder River railroad trussel the trail is closed due to flooding. We will post update once water recedes." See updates at Greenstock Snowsports Facebook page

Rumford:2/19: "2/19/18 - Trail 17 from the Groomer Garage to ITS 82 was groomed, with the Tucker, by Trailmasters Tom Reed and Gene Knox. Tom reported that, "The trails have held up pretty well until now, but the warm temps are making the trails soft and thin in some spots. Riders are encouraged to stay off the trails this Tuesday and Wednesday due to the upcoming rain showers and temps approaching the 60's."
Trail 17 was groomed by Louise and Bob Stickney. They also groomed Trail 12 from Concord Pond to Rumford Corner.
Blackberry Lane was groomed by Denis Dufour. He also groomed more than half of ITS 82 west.
We've noticed that most riders have been doing a pretty good job of not tearing up the trails this year. Thank you for that. Jesse Farrington also made the following comment, "Been meeting a lot of respectful sledders at the Warming Hut lately. That's good to see." Again, thank you riders.
Now if we can get through the next 2 or 3 days of unseasonabley warm, wet weather without a lot of damage to the trails, we should still have some good riding ahead." - Rumford Polar Bears web site, Facebook page

We found a weak point in one of our newer lightweight drags but were able to get home just fine - a little reinforcement plating and it will be back in service.
Downtown area - Krista's Four Seasons, Sheas Gas, & Jordans store area also had some grooming done!
PLEASE whoever is ripping up the fields & trail & snowbanks in and around the Orchard... Please stop. You are going to ruin it for everyone. Its not hard to tell who is doing it - the tracks lead right to your house. This is us giving you ONE chance by asking nicely." - Sebago Branch Duckers Facebook page.

They are all in great shape and packed down hard. There is one small washout just west of the main power lines behind Cold Stream Storage that was filled in with the groomer but may open up again with the warmer weather heading into the weekend, so use caution.
Our trail east to Burlington and Lincoln still has a small section closed off by a landowner just beyond where the trail splits off to Cold Stream Pond. Sledders can get to the pond from either side of the closed section and we will be working on getting new signs up to direct traffic.
Overall these are the best snow conditions we've seen in a while so get out, enjoy, and stay safe!"- Cold Stream Sno-Riders

Gardiner:2/14 : "Trails are in pretty good shape considering the warm weather and rain, but watch out for water holes and ice patches. Basically spring conditions. Can't groom because we would lose what little loose snow is on the hardpack, but they are pretty flat." - Brian Winchester, Gardiner Ridge Riders
