Snowmobile Trail Conditions


March 27th, 2015

This weekend’s North County forecast is calling for a cloudy day on Saturday with temps in the high 20s falling back into the teens at night, and a sunny Sunday with temps in the low 30s - should make for some good spring riding.  There will most likely be more traffic as riders who have ridden in other areas of the state this season head north – please use caution, stay to the right, keep your speed down, and help to make the trails last longer by riding appropriately!

Last week we thanked the clubs for their hard work this season; this week a thank you goes out to all of the landowners that allow trails on their property.  NH’s trail system is a success in part to your participation.  Thank you for working with the local clubs!

TRAIL CLOSURE ALERT: Cleveland Notch on 7 North is closed due to logging.  Signs are posted at the junction of 7 & 111.

Please remember to use extra caution when spring riding – thin/bare areas, exposed objects, opening water bars, thawing ice, etc.!

Hope you had a great season.  Here’s looking forward to another one next year!
