Maine Snowmobile Trail Notices & News
Attention Trail Riders:
- When crossing railroad tracks be careful not to spin snow onto the tracks. Over time this snow builds up creating a ramping effect that has caused train derailment. These rail lines are privately owned and can be closed, which would fracture the trail system.
- Stop at all railroad crossings.
- Ride right.
MSA Trail Condition Reports, posted during the grooming season, are provided by MSA family or business members, groomer operators, trailmasters and project directors. Reports are not a guarantee of current conditions.
