Hello fellow neighbors,
Winter is coming, and snowmobile season is almost here!
Bowdoinham is lucky to have an extensive trail system thanks to the many landowners in Bowdoinham, Bowdoin, and Richmond that have granted us access to over 40 miles of recreational snowmobile trails for use throughout the winter months. Not only do these trails allow us to travel throughout our community, but they are also interconnected with other trail systems that expand into many towns all over the state.
Many of us enjoy using these trails when the ground is covered in a blanket of snow. As you use the trails, we’d like you to consider that we have the privilege to do so because of our gracious community members. We are guests on their property, and we ask you to be respectful of the trail system, so may continue to have one. When riding, please be a good neighbor and
• stay on the marked trails,
• leave trails as you found them,
• stay off trails with ATV’s unless you have landowner permission,
• be mindful of your speed, and
• be familiar with State snowmobile laws (a copy may be found here: https://www.maine.gov/ifw/atv-snowmobile/snowmobile/laws-rules.html)
Over 40 miles of trails and 20+ bridges in town are maintained by your local snowmobile club, The Bowdoinham Snowbirds. Keeping the trails trimmed, building bridges, and grooming trails require hard work and resources.
Consider joining our club of great people for friendship, comradery, or helping out with trail maintenance. We improve our trails and have fun all at the same time!
Club dues and a portion of your snowmobile registration go directly toward keeping these trails available to us. For more information, visit us at www.mesnowbirds.com or our Facebook page. Membership dues can now be accepted via Paypal for your convenience.
