20 Mar 18 Snowmobile Trail Conditions Report: The Forks, Maine March 20
Welcome to the first day of spring and some of the best late season riding we’ve seen in years. Plenty of snow, temperatures down in the low teens at night allows great grooming and setup, and moderate temps during the day for comfortable riding. We groomed the entire trail system Monday night and it is in great condition! For the rest of the week we will be grooming Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. All sections have plenty of snow and the riding is pretty awesome . . . . Enjoy it while it lasts!
ITS 86 FROM BERRYS STORE HEADING EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE
Intown gets beat up quickly with the heavy traffic. Once out of town just a mile, things improve greatly. Power Line section near Moxie Pond is good. There is a 1 mile stretch of shared, plowed road at Moxie Pond . . . Go easy through there.
ITS 87 HEADING SOUTH TOWARD BINGHAM
Fine ride all the way through. Take ITS 87 south to the Bingham Wind Farm Trail, then loop back around onto the Pleasant Pond Trail and back to The Forks. This is a great 65 mile loop with spectacular scenery around Moxie Mountain. Ride right under the 300’ tall wind towers! (see more: recommended rides)
PLEASANT POND TRAIL
Good snow cover. Decent all the way from the Bingham Wind Farm Trail back to ITS 87.
BALD MOUNTAIN TRAIL
Good snow cover. Nice going all the way through.
Open and groomed.
KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL
Open and groomed all the way from Northern Outdoors to West Forks.
