Aroostook County Snowmobile Trail Report – April 3
Mother Nature has one more winter storm heading our way, so that means snowmobiling season isn't over just yet! There's still some time to get in some late season riding!
Here is the Aroostook County Snowmobile Trail Report for April 3rd, 2015, from the desk of Gary Marquis with the Caribou Parks and Recreation Department.
2014-15 is the winter that will never end. With a couple of inches predicted tonight and possibly a significant storm over the weekend this winter just does not want to go away. Most clubs are reporting that if we get some more of the white stuff they will get out one more time to groom, but most projects are looking at wrapping up this season.
Some clubs have removed signs and markers so use caution as you venture out.
Remember that the deer are on the move in the Caribou area off of ITS 83 so watch out for those white tails.
There has been some reports of dirt showing up in fields so pay attention when crossing open fields especially in the Central Aroostook area.
ITS 85 Oxbow and Ashland have called it quits for the year, Portage and Eagle lake will continue a little longer if need be.
ITS 83 Houlton is grooming there section once a week, Mars Hill might go out again if it snows, Presque Isle, Washburn and Caribou will be out if we get more, but this trail is holding up well.
ITS 81 This section is in good shape
ITS 92 This trail is holding nice.
ITS 90 Rode sections of this trail earlier in the week and it is in good shape.
ITS 88 Ashland end is no longer being groomed but Aroostook rivers end is still.
ITS 86 Houlton and Oxbow have called it quits on this trail for the season.
ITS 105 ARSC has got this section reopened and road this trail as well from Mapleton North to Van Buren and it is still in good shape with lots of snow
ITS 120 With deep snow this trail should be around for some time.
RT. 89 Reports early this week in good shape, Caribou will no longer cross the Madawaska and Halfway Streams this winter.
RT. 100 Improved riding from Caswell… remember though there are two branches of this trail one goes north out of Caswell and one goes west further south. They both intersect Rt 89 one closer to Rt 94 and the other closer to the Madawaska River…. Watch for markings.
Easton trails are holding up well.
