Snowmobile Trail Conditions Report: The Forks, Maine March 27

With daytime temps in the high 40’s and night time temps in the low teens we’ve been able to continue grooming operations by night and enjoy comfortable riding conditions during the day.

We groomed the entire trail system Monday night and it is in generally good shape! If weather permits we will groom Friday and Saturday nights. There’s still plenty of riding to be had once you get out from the trailheads and in-town access points.. . . . Enjoy the last few days of the season, we will be closing the lodge after lunch on Sunday, April 1st.

ITS 86 FROM BERRYS STORE HEADING EAST TOWARD GREENVILLE
Intown is quite rough. 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.

CARATUNK SPUR
Open and groomed.

KENNEBEC RIVER TRAIL
Open and groomed all the way from Northern Outdoors to West Forks.
