Snowmobile Trail Conditions

March 21, 2019

While the season is winding down, there is still plenty of snow in some areas for spring riding and the forecast is calling for 2-6” over the weekend in the North Country!

The Bureau would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of the landowners that allow snowmobile access on their property AND to all of the clubs that take care of the trails.  The partnerships between landowners and local clubs are the reason why NH’s snowmobile trail system is one of the best in the Country.

Next Thursday will be the last Trail Condition Report the BOT puts out.  We will continue to provide information on our Facebook page as we receive it.  We will begin to transition that page to conditions for OHRV riding and OHRV events as well.

OHRV riders should note that all southern trails they can ride on in the winter are now CLOSED!
