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.

AROOSTOOK COUNTY

Mars Hill:3/24: "Last week's snow storm and the unusually cold temps have given us 1 more week of grooming. Our entire system has been groomed and is in great shape. Watch out for the deer on ITS 81 south between Rte 1 and the intersection of Trail 83A. You may encounter some minor drifting in fields and open areas as it was windy yesterday (3/23). Heavy traffic and warmer temps this weekend will cause trails to get rough sooner. We have gone over the hours needed for our grant so this is likely the last weekend that we will do any grooming.
ITS 83 Mars Hill to Presque Isle is in good condition. Slow down by the house in Westfield- GO 20 MPH PLEASE!!
ITS 83 Mars Hill to Monticello is in good shape. The trail is now OPEN in Bridgewater as the logging operation has moved out. We were able to pull in some snow yesterday but you will encounter some bare dirt along this stretch since it had been plowed.
#9 Lake Trail is in good condition. There is some major water / ice at the intersection with ITS 83 in Monticello. There is snow over this right now but as warmer temps come back the water will start to come to the surface again forming more ice. Be cautious and slow down here!
Route 70A is in good condition.
ITS 81 from Mars Hill southwest in good condition. Watch for deer on the trail!
ITS 81 northeast from Mars Hill to Easton is in good condition." - John Bailey, Central Aroostook SC

Please be aware that Spring riding conditions do exist especially on ITS#83 as waterholes are starting to open up more. Riders need to use caution and SLOW DOWN for existing conditions. Remember, good conditions still exist if you trailer to Shin Pond or The Greater Katahdin Region west of Millinocket.

ROUTE 201 CORRIDOR

The Forks:3/23: "Plenty of snow out there. Trails are in great shape everywhere on our system. We groomed Sunday, Monday and Wednesday nights. We'll be out again Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Trails are flat and firm. No bare spots, no ice. It's about as good as it gets!
Please note the detour on ITS 86 just west of the Boise Road, where a bad waterhole has opened up... it is described below.
TRAIL CLOSURE/DETOUR... ITS 87 BETWEEN PLEASANT POND AND TROUTDALE ROAD. Due to last minute changes in winter harvesting plans by the landowner, there are several miles of plowed road due to logging on ITS 87 south of Pleasant Pond. For travel between The Forks and Bingham, use the Bald Mountain Trail and ITS 86. Using the Bald Mountain Trail and ITS 86 will connect you back to ITS 87, thereby bypassing the plowed roads.
ITS 86 FROM BERRY'S STORE HEADING EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE/ROCKWOOD TO THE ITS 88 JUNCTION. Intown can get chopped up quickly because of heavy traffic. Once just a mile out of town things improve. There is a detour around a bad waterhole just before the Boise Road. The detour takes you along a 1 mile section of the Boise Road, which is no longer being plowed and is now groomed. One mile Power Line section near Moxie Pond is good. There is a 1 mile section of plowed/shared road around Moxie Dam ... scratchy, but you can keep on snow a majority of the way by riding the side. Rest of the way up to our turnaround at the junction of ITS 88 is in fine shape.
BALD MOUNTAIN TRAIL. Good all the way through from ITS 86 to 87.
ITS 87 HEADING SOUTH TOWARD BINGHAM. Good shape all the way toward Northern Outdoors. Heading further south, ITS 87 is only open to Pleasant Pond. ITS 87 south of Pleasant Pond is closed due to logging. See trail closure/detour info above.
MOXIE MOUNTAIN TRAIL (club trail). This trail is groomed only to the Caratunk Spur. South of the spur is not open.
CARATUNK SPUR Open and groomed.
KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL. Good shape with plenty of snow all the way through from Northern Outdoors to West Forks." - Jim Yearwood, Forks Area Trails Club, Northern Outdoors, Facebook page

Jackman-Moose River:3/22: "The groomers went out last night after it got cold and will go again tonight in our region. Reports from surrounding clubs are also good.

West Forks, Parlin Pond:3/22: "**Last report of the season** The storm last week was just what we needed to finish our season off strong. With great snow and warm temps, this past weekend was one of the best of the season. The groomers were out last night and will be out again over the next few days. Overall the trails are good to excellent. There is plenty of snow and only a few sporadic dirt spots on our entire system. After the the warm up followed by cold temps today, most everything is flat and fast. I rode a couple hundred miles the past 3 days and except for the last 10 miles before Grand Falls (which was terrible), the trails were very good. We groomed 89 to Grand Falls last night and it is much better! Still not perfect, but not bad. There is a plowed 1 mile section on ITS 87 just south of the powerlines. There is still plenty of snow on the road so it shouldn't be an issue. The trail conditions overall are the best i've ever seen them this late in March.
I got a call from the landowner this morning and was informed that they will be going in to open up the Lower Enchanted Rd and starting work there on Monday. Because of this, THE TRAIL TO GRAND FALLS AND EUSTIS (86/89) FROM THE INTERSECTION OF ITS 86 AND ITS 89 WILL BE CLOSED AFTER THIS WEEKEND.
For most this will be the last ride of the season. Please slow it down and use extra caution as the trails are very fast and very slick. It should be the perfect weekend to finish up whats been a good long season. We will groom next week depending on weather and traffic. We will not groom beyond April 1st. Have a great summer!"- Joe, Coburn Summit Riders

PISCATAQUIS-PENOBSCOT-SOMERSET

Monson:3/17: Narrow Gauge Riders Snowmobile Club Facebook page report: "Well, after this last storm lack of snow is no longer our problem! Yesterday we broke out the Blanchard trail and the North Trail with the sled drags after over 8 hours of trying. I guess the stars must have aligned just right because on the spring road it drifted in 4 to 5 feet high across the trail when it usually hardly drifts there at all. We did spend a while shoveling a shelf for the drag to get through. Hopefully people go easy on that little section so we can keep getting the drags by the drifts. Last night the pole line was done by the LMC so that should be in good to great shape for today. Tonight we will groom the Blanchard and north trails again so they should be in good shape for Saturday as well. Right now we just don't have the manpower to get the elliotsville trail broke open again for this weekend and since the 4 miles of road that needs to be run are likely bare, it wasn't a top priority. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Guilford:3/15: Four Winds SC Facebook page report "After finally getting some much needed snow for the trails, things should be shaping up quite nicely for the weekend! The only bad news we have is that the section of the Harlow pond trail between Cleaves Farm and the trail to Sangerville Robinsons is now closed for the season due to logging. We are also dealing with a large mud hole on the powerline on the other side of Harlow pond as well, so the entire trail will no longer be groomed this season. All the other trails are open and will be groomed by Saturday morning.
ITS 85: Was groomed to Blanchard today, being groomed to Dover tonight. Should be in good shape for the weekend.
BREAKNECK RIDGE: Will be groomed tomorrow during the day. Should be in good shape for the weekend.
COVERED BRIDGE TRAIL: Will be groomed tonight. Should be in good shape.
FRENCH CONNECTION: Will be groomed by the weekend.
HARLOW POND TRAIL: No longer being groomed. Ride with caution.

The other machine is on the in-town trails, namely parts of 1, all of 2, 3, 4, & 6. Most of our trail system will be covered by the end of the day with the exception of ITS 82. We may groom that tomorrow night. It will be too warm during the day to groom on Saturday. The trail is laying down very nicely today but not setting up real fast. Sleds riding on the fresh groomed trail that has not set up are being hard on it. That being said I would say about 90% is excellent, the other 10% is good. Unfortunately, I do not believe that the clubhouse is going to be open this weekend, but get out there and enjoy those trails. It may be our last weekend grooming as funds are getting low.

Winter returns with several cold days and now about 18 inches of new snow as I write this. We did groom a few trails Saturday, the 18th and will head out again on Sunday the 19th. The trails are better than expected and there is no water on the groomed trails. There are a few water holes by the Mousam River Bridge on the Double Pole Lines.

We had a good freeze up over the weekend and about a foot and a half of powder last night, no better time than the present to get out and ride, just watch out for rocks or stumps that might be just under the surface. As soon as the trails are packed down we will be out to drag, hopefully before the weekend.
