Curious how trail conditions are in your neck of the woods?
Gary Marquis with the Caribou Parks & Recreation Department has the latest trail report for January 21st, 2015.
ITS 85 Ashland is reporting a logging op. in the Masardis area follow the signs. In the Winterville area there is a slight reroute use the Red River road not the Buggy Brook Road. Two miles north of Oxbow the road is plowed, and it is not in the best of condition. Fort Kent and Eagle Lake are reporting good conditions
ITS 83 Caribou has been out trying to get lubrication for snowmobiles, Madawaska, Presque Isle are out as well. There are icy spots so be careful.
ITS 81 Easton, Mars Hill, Fort Fairfield, Limestone, Grand Isle are holding off until we get more snow, Van Buren, Madawaska have been out and are reporting ok condition.
ITS 92 This trail is in great shape, 92A, and 92B also are in great shape.
ITS 90 Fort Fairfield, and Caribou’s section of this trail is passable but use extreme caution, as you travel further West the conditions get a little better. Caribou will try and get out and do the western section of this trail. Portage will hold off for more snow.
ITS 88 This section of the CP rail line, extreme caution should be used, but as you travel further west it gets better, but ice is very prevalent.
