Snowmobile Trail Conditions Report: The Forks, Maine February 28, 2019

Zach headed off on another trail ride, this time on ITS 87 N towards Coburn Mtn!


We received another 6+” of snow earlier in the week bringing our snowpack to about 4 feet. Temperatures have been cold and the Tuckers have been out regularly. Trails are set up firm and flat . . . the riding right now is sublime!

THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 2/28/19

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.

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. This trail, when combined with the Windmill Trail and Bald Mtn Trail, makes a nice 60 mile loop.

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.

With the deep snowpack, there are a lot of animals using the trails at all times of day and night to get around, particularly deer. Be very careful out there . . . you can come up on them quickly.

      Hi Matt- our club does not groom north of Moxie Pond Rd. Beyond that is Coburn Summit Riders, and then Jackman Border Riders trail systems. I believe Coburn Summit Riders was having some groomer issues (we’ve all been there) so that could explain some issues around Grand Falls. They post updates on their Facebook, so you can keep up to date there.
