Greater Forks Area Snowmobile Trail Conditions

 

Coburn Summit Riders Trail Report 3-14-18
The third storm in as many weeks left us with 12-16 inches of just what we needed to make for a great end to the winter season. We had groomers out all day and will be out tonight as well to start setting up trails for the weekend. Our plan is to groom Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to ensure the best conditions we’ve seen yet this season. Below average temps in the single digits Friday and Saturday night should make for perfect grooming and highs in the teens will make for perfect riding. We plan to groom until the end of the month so that leaves three weekends to enjoy the best conditions so far this winter. All area clubs will be out in full force so make plans and enjoy. It’s a long time until next winter.

Riders heading north out of the Forks should use 86 to the Enchanted Loop to 87 or just use 86 to 89. The river trail is showing bare spots but it gets much better just after you leave town. 87 out of town is passable but there’s a plowed section to deal with if you go that way.

Forks Area Trail Report 3/20/18

What a gorgeous day! Here’s the latest trail report from the Forks Area Trail Club

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!

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.
