Current snow-depth map…yeah, we’ve got snow 😉 !

THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 1/31/19

Over 9” of new snow since last weekend. All trail sections have plenty of snow and are in great shape. Both our Tucker Sno-Cats are out smoothing things out as needed.

ITS 86 EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE
In-town has plenty of snow and is in good shape. However, it does get beat up because of heavy traffic. Once out of town just 1 mile, things improve. Good shape 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
Barring any breakdowns, we have a machine scheduled to groom this out on Thursday or Friday.

ITS 87 HEADING SOUTH TOWARD BINGHAM
In fine shape. Great cruising all the way with some great 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.

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 careful out there.

January 31st was cold but beautiful, as Zach headed out on ITS 87 south for a quick ride. 9″ of new snow = the trails are BOMBER!
