Snowmobile Trail Conditions Report: The Forks, Maine February 26, 2020

THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 2/26/2020

**Update Feb 28th: Yesterday’s storm dropped another 8″ of deliciously fresh snow. Groomers were both out last night, one is out today, and both plan to be out both nights this weekend **

Some warm temperatures and strong sunshine over the past few days have deteriorated the trails somewhat. Still good riding, but it has been difficult getting things groomed out and set up well. The good news is that we are expecting 8 – 10” of snow on Thursday. Both Tuckers will be out right after the storm abates, as well as right through the weekend. Check out the LIVE WEBCAM to see for yourself how the snow is coming along!

Zach went for a ride before the storm to see how things held up from the warm temps. Keep in mind, things will look a lot different after Thursday’s storm!

**Correction: Groomers will be out Thursday night, and every night through the weekend**

ITS 86 EAST FROM BERRY’S STORE HEADING EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE/ROCKWOOD TO ITS 88 JUNCTION
Intown is in fair shape after grooming. However, because of heavy traffic day and night, intown gets beat up quickly. Once out of town about 1 mile, things improve greatly. The 1 mile Power Line section at Lake Moxie is in good shape. From Moxie Dam up to ITS 88 junction is mostly on unplowed roads and is great riding.

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.

CARATUNK SPUR
Open and well groomed.

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

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.

KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL FROM NORTHERN OUTDOORS TO BERRY’S STORE
Open and groomed. Mostly in good shape. A little rough as you approach town.

PLEASE RESPECT THE LANDOWNERS WISHES . . . . . . . STAY OFF ALL PLOWED ROADS!!
