The last 3-4 years we have ridden groomed trails from Mars Hill north the last week of March! Looks good for even later this year!!!!!

Years ago I used to ride in the county well into April. Other than having to wait for large chunks of ice to clump together to get across the Aroostook River it was pretty decent going.

April 14th, 2007. The Allagash. Got a late storm of about 14" and at that time they don't bother plowing at all so we could ride everywhere. Came upon a warden plane that was wrecked on Clear Lake. The last thing they were expecting to see coming was a group of sleds in April...
