Trail Condition Report

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


This week has been a little challenging for the clubs as the warm temperatures certainly make it a little tough to groom when it get to above freezing and doesn’t get below for quite some time in the morning,  but clubs are doing the best they can.  This is the time of year when water holes begin to show up so, please use caution.  Also the edge of trails are starting to recede so please keep this in mind.  Trails that have had to share plowed sections of logging roads are also starting to get a little muddy.

The temps Friday night are looking like they will go into the teens so this will certainly help clubs get trails ready for the weekend.  The traffic has been steady so trails are taking a little bit of a beating especially later in the day so please ride responsibly. 

Clubs are starting to stretch their fuel budgets and with costly breakdowns they are feeling that financial pinch, so please if you see donation buckets in local restaurants, gas stations, and lodging accommodations please help fuel the fun.  Many clubs have had impressive memberships numbers lets see if we can get these clubs to the number one status in the State, we certainly can boast the best trails lets get these clubs to those big numbers.

Signs are put out for a reason, especially stop signs.  Please stop at all road crossings, trail intersections.  If everyone obeys these signs, then it is a much safer and better experience for everyone.

We all know that snow is getting deeper and those off corridor areas look inviting but there is a reason the corridor is where it’s located for a reason, please respect the landowner, and clubs wishes, and this will ensure that we have trails to groom in the future.

Lakes are becoming very slushy so if you are not familiar with a certain body of water then maybe staying on the trails is a better alternative.

Deer, Moose, and Turkeys are out on the trails and as the snow gets deeper there will be more and more out there.

Mars Hill 3/9/2023

Reporting trails are in good shape.  Please slow down on the plowed section of 83/   Plowed section in Bridgewater for 2.3 miles due to logging operation. #9 Lake Trail from ITS 83 in Monticello is closed due to a logging operation. As an FYI the restaurants on Main St. in Mars Hill are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so sledders should plan accordingly. Freshies’ deli is the only one open those days.  Also it is illegal to park a snowmobile on the sidewalk unless the town has passed this ordinance.  In Mars Hill please do not park or ride on the sidewalks except to cross them, there is ample parking out back.  They are asking people to slow down.
