OUR LANDOWNERS: Please respect all landowners wishes while riding. Snowmobilers in Maine are the guests of Maine landowners who allow access. It is every snowmobiler's responsibility to protect that access by acting responsibly.

STAY OFF PLOWED ROADS: Snowmobilers who illegally snowmobile on plowed paper company roads threaten access for everyone,
and endanger themselves and the employees operating vehicles on those roads. Do not ride on these plowed roads, and do not park your vehicles and trailers on these roads.

STAY OFF THE BLUEBERRY BARRENS AND OTHER CROPLAND: Snowmobilers who illegally ride on blueberry barrens or other cropland are creating problems for the landowners, potential damage to their crops and threatening recreational access for everyone. Stay on marked trails.

BORDER CROSSINGS: Increased concern and security at our borders calls for strict attention to the law. For information about crossing our border with Canada, see the Border Guide supplied by the United States Border Patrol. (.pdf format, viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader - a free download ).

ATVs and other motorized vehicles: It is against the law to operate an ATV (or a dune buggy, 4 wheel drive vehicle, motorcycle or any other motor vehicle) on a snowmobile trail funded by the Club/Municipal grant program at any time of the year, unless the landowners have granted permission to do so.

WHEN CROSSING RAILROAD TRACKS be careful not to spin snow onto the tracks. Over time this snow builds up creating a ramping effect that has caused train derailment. These rail lines are privately owned and can be closed, which would fracture the trail system. Stop and look both ways at all railroad crossings.

Snowmobile Trail Conditions Grooming equipment
Reports reflect observations of MSA members who clear, sign, groom and ride the trails of Maine. Local chambers of commerce, businesses and snowmobile clubs are a good source for additional information on trails in their area.

Trail Reports are provided to the public courtesy of the members of the Maine Snowmobile Association. Reports are accepted from MSA family and business members, groomers/projects. Please include your name and the name of your MSA club when submitting the report. If you post trail conditions on your club web site and wish to have your updates posted and linked from this page, drop us an email with your request.

AROOSTOOK COUNTY

Aroostook County:: Caribou Rec reports
ITS 85: Oxbow, Portage, Ashland, and Fort Kent will hold off a little longer, Eagle Lake will try and do something over the weekend.
ITS 83: Most of the Rail bed sections of ITS 83 will have some activity by the weekend. North of Axle on Caribou's end might not be done, Red Arrow will be out rolling. Frenchville and Madawaska will also be out. There definitely will be gaps so please use caution.
ITS 81: Some clubs will be out during the weekend, so watch for groomers. Caswell, Van Buren, Grand Isle and Madawaska will try and get the snow packed down. Most projects will be putting up signs so if you see them out there, give them a hand as it takes many volunteers to sign trails.
ITS 92: St. Francis has groomed there section, Allagash might go out and check for blowdowns and will be signing this weekend. There is a beaver dam app. 2 miles south of the intersection from where St. Francis and Allagash meet so use caution.
ITS 90: This section will be very sporadic if anything gets done. Fort Fairfield will try and do something, Caribou will also try, Portage might go out, and they have lots of water to deal with. Remember this section of trail through Fort Fairfield and Caribou goes through a lot of open ground and not all field markers have been put out.
ITS 88: The rail bed sections of this trail will have activity during the weekend, so please use caution crossing open fields as there may not be any action until there is more snow.
ITS 86: Houlton will try and be out, Oxbow will be holding off a little longer.
ITS 105: Van Buren, Caribou, and Washburn will be out on this section for the weekend.
RT. 100: Caswell will try and do something over the weekend.
RT. 89: Not open.
Just a few corrections ITS 83 South of Mars Hill going toward Houlton will be open this winter.
