Snowmobile Trail Conditions Report: The Forks, Maine February 13, 2020

THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 2/13/2020

We have received about 10” of snow in the past week. This has helped our groomers to improve our trail conditions tremendously. Generally speaking, trail sections on unplowed roads are very good to excellent, while woods trails are fair to good. We have been working the trails all week to get them in good shape for the weekend and school vacation week. Things are looking good right now!

ITS 86 EAST FROM BERRY’S TOWARD GREENVILLE/ROCKWOOD ITS 88 JUNCTION
Intown is in decent shape. However, because of heavy traffic, intown gets beat up quickly. Once out of town about 1 mile, things improve greatly. The groomers have been able to fill in the larger waterbars on ITS 86 around Mosquito Mtn, so that is much improved. The 1 mile Power Line section at Lake Moxie is fair to good. From Moxie Dam up to ITS 88 junction is mostly on unplowed roads and is great riding.

KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL
Open and groomed. Mostly in good shape. A little rough as you approach town.

BALD MOUNTAIN TRAIL
Mostly unplowed roads and is in great shape. There is no connection off the south end of the BMT to the Wind Mills in Bingham, as there has been in the past. Only access to the Wind Mills is a trail off ITS 87 north of Bingham. The Bald Mtn Trail combined with the Pleasant Pond Trail form a great loop ride between ITS 86 and ITS 87.

BREAKNECK RIDGE TRAIL
Open and groomed and in good shape.

ITS 87 HEADING SOUTH TOWARD BINGHAM
Boise Road and Divide Road sections are in great shape. Short woods sections at Pleasant Pond and Moore’s Bog are fair to good. Rest of the way south towards Bingham is a nice ride.

PLEASANT POND TRAIL
Mostly on unplowed roads . . . . . sweet riding!

CARATUNK SPUR
Open and well groomed.
