Maine Snowmobile Trail Reports Winter 2021/2022


Welcome to the JMRRCOC trail page. Get your snowmobile trail report updates here all winter long for select trails in the Jackman and Moose River Regions. We update our report as we learn more about the trail conditions from the club, riders, and sometimes, when we can, from surrounding clubs.

The Jackman area offers an extensive, well-groomed and maintained trail system that you can access from most local businesses in the area. For general information about snowmobiling in the Jackman Moose River Region, including who to contact to register, crossing the border, or general safety facts, please visit our Maine snowmobiling page. If you cannot find the trail information you are looking for, please contact the Border Riders Sportsman's Club.

For Snowmobile Trail Descriptions, see below. We offer general trail descriptions. We would love to hear what you think of each trail after you ride. Leave us a comment or upload specific GPS coordinates to points of interest. Did you find an incredible Geocache while out on the trail?Or see any wildlife? Or maybe a great sunset.

If you are looking for a shorter day run, there are many loops and club trails off of the ITS trails that you can venture on. You can pack a lunch before you take off for the day, take a break at a great scenic spot to enjoy the scenery, then head on back to town. Don't forget a camera as you are sure to see some incredible sites along the way.

Please Note: Some trails may vary from year to year due to timber harvesting so please follow the signs on the trails and show respect to the landowners who have been generous with us. Use your map and follow signage. Know where the emergency zones are and be sure to have enough gas to get to the next station! Having a compass with you is also not a bad idea.

Trails are in great shape throughout our whole system.

Report from the Birches on 3/15 88 to Jackman is groomed and nice. 88 to Greenville being logged so closed again. They are really tearing it up bad over there. .

Blue Ridge Riders on 3/8 ⚠️ **OPEN WATER** blue trail (state docks to kineo) there is a lot of water on the pressure ridge. Please use extreme caution on the lake. ⚠️
There are many areas with a very thin top layer of ice, once broken through there is 2-3 inches of water under it...it is even deeper by kineo before you get on land.
On the red trail (birches) follow the ridge to the shore line and cross the ridge on shore on the kineo side. Surface on the pressure ridge isn't frozen solid yet.

ITS 89 South to the Forks & beyond

March 17, 2022

Coburn Summit Riders trail report 3/16/22
Heading into the end of our winter season, our trail system is holding up well. Rider reports all week have been very good. The southern end, south of the powerline, is definitely not as good as the northern areas but is still a decent ride. Bare spots are showing down there and I expect that with the next couple warm days, it will really start to take its toll. We will groom next on Friday once it starts to cool down again. I will do an update after we go through the last of the warm up tomorrow to give a better idea how we fared. This weekend should be good but I wouldn’t count on too much the following weekend as the long days and sun will eat up what base we have left. Enjoy it while you can!

Always an option
Please ride with caution! There is very little snow coverage.


In order to ensure future access for snowmobile trails on these properties, the cooperation of all snowmobilers is greatly appreciated.

NOTE:When riding off trail be sure you are not in a plantation. This is where the landowner has replanted trees. Riding in that area will destroy the new trees. Thank you.

Club Trails




Border Riders North Club Trail

The Border Riders North trail, rides along the west side of US Rt. 201. You can access this trail from the clubhouse or from ITS 89 (which rides along the east side of US Rt. 201). It is a windy trail with great scenery of Burnt Jacket Mountain and the Slide Down valley area. This is a part of a nice loop, about 40 miles round trip, with some winding curves but an easy cruising ride.

Note: there is another trail that leads to the clubhouse from the North West end of Big Wood Lake. Many riders like this access when the in town trails get a little rough. At times, this trail may be closed due to harvesting or unsafe ice so please, follow the signs or ask before heading across the ice.

Long Pond Trail

You can access this trail south of town off ITS 89. When Long Pond is safe, the trail across the pond will be marked and will take you up to ITS 88. From the Long Pond trail you can go south via ITS 89A to go toward Parlin. This is a wide trail offering awesome scenic views to the east.
