THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 3/21/19

Riders are reporting that they have been enjoying some fine spring riding this week in The Forks! Still plenty of snow and we have been grooming regularly. Trails are pretty smooth except intown as noted below. We will continue to groom through March 31 as conditions allow.

ITS 86 EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE
Because of heavy traffic, intown gets beat up quickly. Once out of town just 1 mile, things improve. Power Line section at Moxie Pond is fine. Great riding all the way to the ITS 88 intersection.

KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL
Good snow all the way through from Berry’s Store to Northern Outdoors.

BALD MOUNTAIN TRAIL
Plenty of snow with good riding. This trail connects to the Bingham Windmill Trail, as well as the Breakneck Ridge Trail. **see note below re: Windmill Trail

ITS 87 HEADING SOUTH TOWARD BINGHAM
In fine shape. Great cruising all the way with some nice views of Sugarloaf Mtn and the Bigelow Range. **see note below re: Windmill Trail

PLEASANT POND TRAIL
Will not be opened this season, due to a winter long logging operation. Several miles of plowed roads.

CARATUNK SPUR
Open and in good shape.

**The south end of the Windmill Trail off of ITS 87 has been plowed and there is now active logging going on. The Windmill Trail off of ITS 87 is now posted closed. You can still access the windmills from the north end, via the Bald Mountain Trail or Breakneck Ridge Trail. However, there is no longer a through trail. It is a dead end at the windmills and you’ll have to back track.

There are still a lot of animals using the trails to get around day and night, particularly deer. Be very careful out there . . . you can come up on them quickly.
