Landowners in Maine have a tradition of allowing public recreation on private land. Rumford landowners are no exception. All of the Polar Bears Snowmobile trails are on privately owned land and we are fortunate to have a cordial and trusting relationship with local landowners.

Access to private land is a privilege, not a right. It is critical that we respect the property that we are privileged to use. That means staying on marked trails, not littering, and keeping noise levels down when passing near residences. We need to remember that our actions affect everyone who wants to use private land for recreation.

The Rumford Polar Bears Snowmobile Club wishes to express its thanks to the gracious landowners who allow us to ride on their property. Without their generosity, the Rumford snowmobile trail system would not exist!
