08 Feb 19 Snowmobile Trail Conditions Report: The Forks, Maine February 7, 2019
THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 2/7/19
A little warm up earlier this week, but temps are back down to normal and we are grooming regularly. Overall, trails are in good to very good shape.
ITS 86 EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE
In town has good snow cover but, because of heavy traffic, gets beat up quickly. Once out of town just 1 mile, things improve. There is a little dirt showing on some inside corners along a 1 mile section over The Divide. Snow cover through there is a little thin in spots because we did some excavator work in December after we had gotten some snow. After that short section, it’s good going all the way to the ITS 88 intersection. Power Line section at Moxie Pond is fine.
KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL
Good snow all the way through from town to Northern Outdoors.
BALD MOUNTAIN TRAIL
Plenty of snow with good riding. This trail connects to the Bingham 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.
PLEASANT POND TRAIL
Will not be opened this season, due to a winter long logging operation. Several miles of plowed roads.
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 careful out there.
Day riders, there is a FREE PARK & RIDE LOT at Northern Outdoors on Route 201. The large parking lot is plowed with plenty of room for snowmobile trailers and groomed access to all trails. The Park & Ride lot is marked with a large sign on Route 201, 1/4 mile south of Northern Outdoors. Snowmobile trail maps, 91 octane ethanol-free gas, and great food are available at Northern Outdoors.
**PLEASE NOTE: gas is CASH ONLY and available 9:00am-5:00pm
