THE MAINE HIGHLANDS IS A WORLD CLASS SNOWMOBILING
DESTINATION. The snow is plentiful here, and the thousands of miles
of well-groomed trails provide fun and excitement for all riders.
While snowmobiling is a fun activity, it’s important to remember
that it’s a sport that requires a great deal of responsibility. A large
percentage of Maine’s snowmobile trails are on private landowners’
property, and it’s important to respect their land. Local snowmobile
clubs work tirelessly to make sure trails are well marked and are in top
condition. This is mainly done through volunteering. You can find a
list of local snowmobile clubs on The Maine Highlands website.
Towns along the trail system welcome snowmobilers, and provide
ample opportunity for lodging, refreshments, and shopping. Guide
services, equipment rentals, and advice on good rides are available in
many local establishments. The best ride of your life may be a thrilling
guided off-trail ride that will take you where no tracks have ever been.
TRAIL CONDITION REPORTS are easily accessible and will help
you ascertain the safety of the ice on the many ponds and lakes
crossed by the trails. The most reliable conditions are from January
to March, but this does vary depending on annual snowfall.
