The Jackman Moose River Region Chamber of Commerce announces that SNOW has arrived.
Jackman, the snowmobile hub of Maine, were we get the snow first and lose it last.
December 7, 2007
This week’s storm brought 14 to 18 inches of fluffy white powder to the region. Off trial riding is already in full force on unplowed roadways allowing some great pre-season riding.
Jackmans’ snowmobile club (Border Riders Sportsman Club) and area businesses have been very busy preparing for this years snowmobile season: Installation of 30 culverts on South ITS 89 towards Owls Head and new trail opening with access to the forks region and to Eustis; a new groomer was purchased and due to arrive this week to join with Jackman’s other two groomers to maintain the trails in spectacular riding condition.
The trail master, Dave Jones, hopes to be able to open some of the trails in this region to the public by December 15th. Be sure to call before planning to ride.
The Jackman-Moose River Region offers over 100 miles of signed and groomed that will take you atop mountains offering incredible scenic views, on winding trails which take you adjacent to babbling streams and through wooded areas, and across the many lakes in the region. From Jackman, you can then connect to Maine’s ten thousand miles of trails riding to Rangeley, Greenville, Millinocket, The Forks, Eustis and even into Quebec.
