I'll be in the truck Thursday for sure, but might not cross the bridge until Friday. Where I ride is going to depend on snow totals, grooming activity, and swamps (I figure lots aren't frozen yet).

Thats the bad part. There is no frost in the ground with all teh rain they have been getting.

We got about 7" out of the storm in Rexton, enough to run the sled around the yard or play in a field but that's about it. Trails will be down to dirt quickly with any traffic. We had a few cold nights this week, the ground froze a couple inches down so it should stay. Any wet areas will still be dangerous though.

Welcome welcome 906up!

Thanks for the update, it is great to get info from the Rexton area, that is usually a gap in our reports.

I'll fill in when I can, work keeps me on the road a lot so it'll be hit & miss.

Neil, how far up this way do you groom? Turn around at the store?

On your end, our trail is the Cut River trail, Brevort to Epoufette, and the Caffey (truck trail) for the NW towards Rexton, we turn around at the RR Tracks, so technically just East of Rexton where the trail splits to go SE on the truck trail, and E to Trout Lake.
