Snowmobile Trail Conditions Report: The Forks, Maine February 2

Generally speaking trails are in good shape. Could use more snow on woods trails. Sections of trail on unplowed roads are in very good shape. Some corners are developing ice, so be careful.

ITS 86 FROM BERRYS STORE HEADING EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE
In town section is still a little thin in places and gets beat up quickly with the heavy traffic. Once out of town just a mile, things improve. Boise Road section is great. On the section going around Mosquito Mountain, there are a couple ditches that the groomers haven’t been able to fill completely. Go easy through there. The 1 mile Power Line section near Moxie Lake is rough. From Moxie Lake all the way to the ITS 88 intersection is very good.

ITS 87 HEADING SOUTH TOWARD BINGHAM
Groomed and very good riding. A little thin and icy in spots for about 1 mile going around the windswept area on the south side of Moxie Mountain. (Check out Luke’s recent ride up to the Moxie Mountain Overlook.)

BALD MOUNTAIN TRAIL
Groomed with nice going all the way through.

PLEASANT POND TRAIL
Groomed all the way to the Bingham Wind Farm Trail. A sweet ride!

CARATUNK SPUR
Open and groomed.

KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL
Groomed with decent riding all the way through from Northern Outdoors to West Forks. A little rough for the last mile as you approach town. The trail is flooded near Northern Outdoors due to an ice jam on the river. There is a detour which is well marked.

“Conditions haven’t changed much since last week except for an inch or so of snow that fell last night and today. Our trails are holding up very well considering the weather hand we’ve been dealt and most riders are very surprised how good the conditions are considering… The area up high around Coburn Mountain is still very thin and rocky. It’s passable but not good. We will do what we can with it but until we get more snow, that’s about all we can do. The Coburn Summit trail will be groomed again to the halfway point but not to the top. Experienced riders only should attempt to go to the summit and expect bad conditions toward the summit. “

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. Snowmobile trail maps, 91 octane ethanol free gas, and great food are available at Northern Outdoors.
