Trail Condition Report

NOAA: Bowlin/ Mars Hill/Pattern, ME current weather conditions

Now that there is a good amount of snow in the County, clubs are now dealing with more off trail riding. Remember that the trails in the County are in places where the landowner is wanting the trails. So please respect the entirety of the system and stay on marked trails. Clubs work thousands of hours to prep and groom trails and it takes one sled to ruin it.

Please use caution on this frozen body of water.

Fields are diminished to ice and dirt. Their section of 83 is icy but they are out with the tucker and coming out decent.

Mars Hill 2/24/2022

Reporting that they received freezing rain and are asking sledders to be on the lookout for low hanging branches. They will be back out once the temps cool off. The section of the plowed area did bare up a little with last warm up and this latest warmup will not help so please keep a look out for dirt. Reminder of logging operation in Bridgewater. 2.3-mile plowed section, the landowner is going to allow the snowmobile trail to continue through this area if speed does not exceed 30mph, and yield to motor vehicles. If there are issues, they will close this section of trail down and the club will need to reroute 20 miles.
