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.

ITS 89 South to the Forks & beyond

January 20, 2022

Coburn Summit Riders Trail Report 1/19/22
After another long wait to get our season started, it looks like were finally in business. Weve groomed everything on our trail system over the past few days and conditions overall are very good. The best riding is still on the east side of 201. ITS 87 coming out of the Forks is thin in spots and you still need to watch out for rocks but once you get a little out of town, its a very good ride. As it usually is early season, roads are very good to excellent and trails through the woods or off roads are marginal in spots. The worst section of our trail system is on ITS 89 around Coburn. There are multiple wind blown areas that are passable but not a good ride. Use caution and pick your way around these areas. ITS 86 is groomed and in good shape out to Grand Falls.
The summit trail is has not been opened up yet and wont be groomed until we get a little more snow.
Just another reminder about the trail reroute. ITS 89 goes around the east side of Parlin now. The section of trail is CLOSED on the West side of 201 north of Coburn until we get more snow. We moved ITS 89 onto the North Shoulder Bypass.
Were still out working on some signing and its still considered early seasons conditions so please use caution and common sense when riding. Get out and have some fun!

Off - Trail Riding

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.
