Most trails are in good to great condition. Still some areas that need a bit more snow cover. The areas are 85/86 from Stacyville intersection to the state road (pole line), the rockpile area on 85/86 near Hurd Pond and the club trail through Jerry Pond to the hotels.

On 2/8/21, Twin Pines Snowmobile Club groomed the following trails.  85/86 from the Stacyville Road to Penobscot Pond via Abol, the 112 connector to Logan Pond, the 111 connector to Wiley’s bridge (this was referred to as the downtown connector) and Central Street. *The Grant Brook Connector is closed to snowmobiling.

Jo Mary Riders: On 2/8/2021, opened up Ragged Mountain trail, the G/G Loop, connector trail from 109 to the B-Pond trail. The Parkway was groomed including the Scenic Loop. Overall there is good snow coverage on the trail system with only a few bony spots. Note: Still signing some areas.

East Branch Sno-Rovers: On 2/8/2021, from Medway to Whetstone on 83N, The town trails and 110 were groomed.

The Katahdin Region received around 3″ of fluffy snow last night. We already had a decent base, thanks to the last storm and conditions have been good across the region.

Twin Pines snowmobile Club: On 2/6/2021, the Twin Pines Snowmobile Club groomed 85/86 from the Stacyville Road to the 112 connector. Soft snow, so trail will get bumpy quickly. The pole line from town is bumpy but rideable.  Use caution. There are two water holes in the normal places.

We also groomed the Wild Kingdom trail and 85/86 From Twin Pines to Logan Pond via the state road (also to Penobscot Pond) and all are in good condition. The state road is groomed into two lanes. Logan Pond to the 112 connector, to Stratton Trail, ride  with caution.  **The Grant Brook Connector is closed to snowmobiling. We also groomed Jerry Pond to hotels, including the 111 South Twin Connector

Stay Safe – we like having you around!  General guidelines that all riders should follow as it may save you from a cold long night or something tougher: When you are heading out – Ride on the Right Side of the Trail! Ride together, have a plan, operate at a safe speed, stop and wait for your group at intersections. Tell people where you are, and when you will be back.  Waiting at intersections especially as it gets dark will prevent groups being split up and potentially getting lost.  Also – The ITS trails do not cross open water, when you are choosing to go off the main trails onto Lakes and crossing open water areas – use caution, not all ice is the same in all locations on lakes and streams.  Please use good sense when you are traveling – check, don’t assume.  Remember to Ride Right and see you on the trails.
