North Country Rivers Snowmobile Trail Report

Bingham, Maine

(February 20, 2018)


All Valley Riders SC trails were groomed at the end of last weekend and are in good shape. There is still the occasional loose rock exposed so be mindful. Groomers went out last night and will continue throughout the week.

ITS 87 north toward the Forks is thin for the first 8mi but has good coverage and is as flat as can be considering conditions. From that point to where we meet the Forks is flat and fast with excellent coverage.

ITS 87 south is groomed and in fantastic shape all the way to the Solon Dam. Pretty rough and thin if continuing toward the Solon Superette, but should be taken care of with 1 pass from the groomer.

ITS 84 east toward Athens was groomed and fantastic all the way to the end of Mahoney Hill.
IRON GATE RD…It is being groomed again this year!!! This trail hasn’t been groomed for about a week but is fairly flat with excellent coverage. If you have ever checked this trail out we highly recommend it. From ITS 84 at the end of Mahoney Hill Rd it will loop you around to the Wind Mill trail intersection and connector back to ITS 87. Sunshine trail to Withee Pond trail is in fantastic shape as always. When continuing back to ITS 87 you will notice that the Town Line Rd did finally get plowed down to Dead Water but still has good coverage on it.
The other club connector closest to town has also been recently groomed and in great shape, offering our tightest and windiest trail in our club system.

The Wind Mill trail is still in good shape as well. Grooming efforts flattened the trail back out and make this a great route. The very top has gotten thin, but is covered. It is however very icy at Tower 30, which is the big lookout bluff most people are familiar with.

Breakneck Ridge trail has been being groomed and I was told was in great shape!
See you on the trails!
