16 Jan Snowmobiling to Moxie Mountain Overlook: Caratunk, Maine
When you only have an afternoon to ride, or trails aren’t in optimal condition (see the latest snowmobile trail conditions report,) the trail to Moxie Mountain Overlook rewards with a Pleasant Pond closeup and miles of mountain views. The Bigelow Mountain Range makes for a spectacular backdrop on The Forks area snowmobile trails. Luke headed out on ITS 87 South, right behind our sled resort, just after the January thaw freeze cycle. This year that cycle involved enough rain that some were referring to it as the tears of snowmobilers. Good thing we had the snowpack to weather the storm… and there’s some snow in the forecast to freshen up the trails.
The Snowmobile Trail to Moxie Mountain
Ride up the hill out the back of Northern Outdoors, head south on ITS 87. After enjoying the views at Pleasant Pond continue south on ITS 87 until you see the trail spur to Moxie Mountain Overlook. The ride is approximately 10 miles each way.
