Thousands of miles of maintained snowmobile trails throughout Maine are available to followers of this exciting and popular winter sport.
Many of the trails interconnect and adventurous snowmobilers can travel extensively, even beyond Maine's borders into Canada and New Hampshire. This growing network of trails is the product of a cooperative program between snowmobile clubs, municipalities, private landowners and the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.
Additional information and trail maps of some areas are available from the Off Road Vehicles Division of the Bureau of Parks and Lands. Contact White Mountain National Forest Ranger Headquarters in Bethel (207-824-2134) for information about trails there. Local chambers of commerce in many areas have information about local trail systems and accomodations.
