Join the Club – Support The Forks Area Snowmobile Club and Trail System

The Forks Trail System is comprised of approximately 100 miles of ITS, municipal and club trails connecting The Forks area with Parlin, Jackman, Greenville, and Bingham. The Forks Area Trails Club maintains and grooms this trail system with two (2) Tucker Terra 2000 Sno-Cats pulling 18-09 Mogul Master drags. Both of these rigs go out 4-7 times per week, depending on temperature, snowfall, and traffic, and are operated by our core grooming team. We have extremely dedicated drivers who work long over night hours to maintain the trails they themselves love to ride. We are grateful for their commitment to our region and to our trail system!

In an average year, we log 500 hours on each rig. They each eat about 5.0 gallons of fuel per hour, for a total of about 5,000 gallons of fuel each season . . .a lot of money! On top of that, there is the cost of regular maintenance and repair of equipment breakdowns. If you’re a regular visitor to The Forks and enjoy the riding, please support our efforts and join the club! You will take great satisfaction in knowing that you are helping to maintain one of the State of Maine’s best trail systems. We greatly appreciate your support!
