1/30/17 - We are experiencing problems updating our trail report. Please visit our Facebook page for Trail grooming updates.

The A&B Trail is not a through trail at the present time.  There's a dispute about the status of a road within a subdivision.  One of the subdivision lot owners, whose lot is on both sides of the road, has placed a cable across the trail.  Consequently, nearly 400 feet of trail is closed at this landowner's lot.  The cable is located about 0.4 miles from ITS 82.  We will not be maintaining the rest of the trail until we can find a re-route around the lot.

The Downtown Trail is closed.

Trail 12 is not a through trail at this time.  We have been unable to secure landowner access for a safe crossing over the new bridge in Rumford Point.   Therefore, the trail ends at the river on both sides.

For some positive news, we have been able to keep Trail 12 in Rumford Center open in the same general area as before, for at least this year.  Working with the new landowners of a horse pasture field, we have been granted permission to stake the trail at the edge of the field, adjacent to the tree-line.  The landowners will be maintaining a fenced pasture for their horses.  It is extremely important that riders stay on the marked trail, away from the horses.  Stay out of the field.  The trail is well marked.  There's no excuse for being off the trail.   We need to police our own to make sure we're all responsible riders.  Abuse it, we lose it!

Please remember that all grooming and trail maintenance is done by volunteers!  When you see these volunteers working on the trails, a "thumbs up" sign will let them know that their efforts are appreciated . Please preserve the trails by treading lightly and yield to all groomers, day and night.

Your patience and cooperation are appreciated!
