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.

Diehards will still find their April riding - but the fat lady is wailing after a winter for the record books. See reports below.

Reports reflect observations of MSA family and business 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 or supporting business web site and wish to have your updates posted and linked from this page, drop us an email with your request.

GREATER KATAHDIN REGION

Katahdin Area Trail Update :4/11: "This may be the last post of the season. The rain yesterday helped us call it a season. We will no longer be grooming. The last time we groomed was Tuesday April 7. That being said, there is still plenty of snow for you die hard sledders. All trails are still passable with a few spots here and there that you will have to navigate around. Abol Bridge area has little or no snow, which makes it difficult to head west. However, a group of sledders came to Twin Pines yesterday from Greenville and said the riding was great with the only issue being the Abol Area. Heading North is also an option. I spoke to Bowlin Pond Camps and they are open today. So, come on out for one last ride, you’ll be surprised at how much snow we still have!" https://www.facebook.com/NewEnglandOutdoorCenter, www.neoc.com

Enfield:4/10:"There have been a few die hard sledders out there the past few days but with the warmer weather coming our way for the weekend we'll be looking to shut things down for the season. We ask everyone to please stay off the trails as they thaw out and we'll be retrieving our signs and stakes in the next couple of weeks.
