TRAIL REPORT

TRAILS ARE CLOSED!!

 

The NH Bureau of Trails, in coordination with local clubs, will close the NH Snowmobile Trail Network for the season on Thursday, March 26.  Trails will be closed to riders as of sunset.  Despite the spring snows from Monday’s storm, conditions are still deteriorating on the trails daily and all grooming operations have already ceased for the season. The rapidly changing trail conditions, no access to services, concern for landowner’s property as the snow melts and desire to limit distance travel at this time have prompted the decision to shut down the trails.

“We are very appreciative of all efforts from the clubs over the winter, and our private landowners that allow the trails on their properties,” said Trails Chief, Chris Gamache. “We look forward to next winter and all of residents and visitors being able to get out on the trails again for a great riding season.
