AROOSTOOK COUNTY TRAIL REPORT UPDATED 03/25/2022
The Official Snowmobile Trail Report
From the desk of: Gary Marquis
Caribou Parks & Recreation Department
55 Bennett Dr.
Caribou, Me. 04736
As I type this report the Central and Northern part of the County are currently in a
Winter Weather Advisory with 6 plus
inches predicted today. The temperature is hovering around 31 degrees which is
making the snow quite sticky. Most clubs
will be out once the storm is over and will do what they can tonight.
Trails are overall in good condition, and they get better as you travel further
North. The temperatures this weekend
will make for quickly softening trails so please keep this in mind. This is the time
of the year to travel the less
traveled trails in the County which are the green trails on the map. They are
groomed wide and smooth just with a lot
Please use caution in field as the water is starting to collect in the low spots and
with this new snow it might be
covered so caution is advised. Please be respectful of some trails are closed.
The section of 76 in Presque Isle going toward Chapman is closed due to water.
Caribou has a section of 83/90 near the
railbed has water in the diversion ditch, sledders are going around it with no
MOOSE MOOSE AND MORE MOOSE they are everywhere so please when you see the tracks on
the trails, pay attention as they
are close by.
The Deer and Moose are really liking the white carpet that all clubs are laying
down, so if you see tracks on the trail
this means they are out on them, so please use caution. Lots of deer in the Caribou
area on ITS 83 off York Street, and
Washburn Road. Portage and Ashland are reporting lots of deer closer to town so
please use caution.

THE FORKS AREA TRAILS GROOMING UPDATE (03/17/2022)
It's that time of year for us. When the days get longer, the temps get warmer and no
hope in the forecast for anything
We will not be grooming anymore this year but there is plenty of riding and
exploring to do. As the main trails
deteriorate, there is still a ton of snow that is easily navigated. Take this time
to explore, take in nature. A
different type of riding is still riding.
