If you enjoy the snowmobiling in The Forks (see our trail map) and would like to support our efforts, please join The Forks Area Trails Snowmobile Club. All membership monies go into running the two Tuckers that groom the trails.
In an average year, we log 500 hours on each rig. They each eat about 5.0 gallons of fuel per hour. So, that’s a total of 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.
The Forks Trail System is comprised of approximately 100 miles of ITS, municipal and club trails. 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. The cost to purchase and run these rigs is astronomical.
Anyone who has ridden The Forks Snowmobile Trail System, knows that we do “whatever it takes” to make sure that the trails are scenic, well-signed and well-groomed, and that the riding is beyond your expectations. We have extremely dedicated drivers who work long hours, because they like to ride themselves, they are committed to our region and they know what it takes to make smooth trails.
The trail system is designed with several “loops” and takes advantage of the areas many unique scenic landmarks, such as the Kennebec River and Moxie Mountain. Visit our snowmobile trail conditions reports to see the current report from The Forks Area Trails Club trailmaster Jim Yearwood.
So 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!
