1/22/18 - PLEASE USE CAUTION OUT ON THE TRAILS

The Maine State Warden Service is urging people to use caution on ice after a recent string of accidents.  We, too, are advising riders to use caution and good judgement when considering going onto water bodies. To read more about these recent accidents, please click here.

Please be on the lookout, day and night, seven days a week, for grooming equipment. Groomers are large and there may be one over the next blind hill or around the next corner. Groomers have the right of way. Ride right, ride safe, ride in control, and have fun.

2/17/18 - ITS 82 was groomed by Louise and Bob Stickney. They also groomed Trail 12 from ITS 82 to Rumford Point. Art Gagnon and Jesse Farrington also groomed portions of these two trails.

The Black Mountain and Swain Pond trails were groomed by Ron Russell.

The A&B Trail was groomed by Tom Puiia.

Riding should be good tomorrow, 2/18/18. Temperatures in the 40's are forecasted for Monday, 2/19/18, then rain in the evening. Riding on Monday will probably be OK in the morning and early afternoon, but iffy after that. Check tomorrow evening's trail report for an update.


Hopefully, we can get through the abnormally high temperatures heading our way over the next few days without a lot of damage to the trails.

2/14/18 - All of Trail 17, from ITS 82 to Trail 12, was groomed by Louise and Bob Stickney. This trail is pretty good for the most part, but there are a few slumped water bars at the south end of the trail. The bars are still snow covered and passable for now, but be careful, the warm weather and rain over the next few days may open them up.

2/13/18 - The Hanover Trail was groomed by Bob Milligan, Louise Stickney, and Bob Stickney.

2/12/18 - The Phillips, Logan, and Downtown trails were groomed by John Blais.


2/12/18 - Trail 12 from Rumford Point to Concord Pond was groomed by Bob Milligan and Ralph Thurston.
