Previous Springside Trail Conditions

Earlier today the groomer completed routes 301 to Cornwall, 213 to the railbed at Lank's and 409 to New Haven - these trails are now full width. The groomer then headed back on route 209 to Fredericton and is now on its way back to home base. Enjoy it while you can - very disappointing that the rain is gonna ruin it on us again.

Yesterday the groomer finished one complete pass of all of our trails. All trails have a lot of ice underneath them so ride with caution.

Route 101 to Borden, Albany, Kinkora and Emerald had a few bare spots and the operator pulled in as much snow as possible to cover these spots. This area had a lot of drifts especially in the Albany/Borden area. These trails are one lane as it took a while to get through them and get them to set up as best as he could.

The groomer is heading out again shortly to groom route 209 from the Appin Road through route 301 to Cornwall, route 213 to the railbed at Lank's and route 409 to New Haven - when completed these trails will be full width.

REMEMBER: there is a lot of ice underneath this snow be careful!

The groomer is on the go again heading west to see what the conditions are like that way. It is now on route 209 on its way to Crapaud, then if conditions allow, route 101 to Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden.

Will update again a little later.

Our groomer has been out since later last evening. The first thing I want to say is that there is a lot of ice on the trails so please ride with caution!

The groomer was able to groom route 301 to Cornwall and route 213 to the railbed at Lanks. The operator is disappointed as the snow is not releasing from the drag very well and he has had to lift the drag in spots and there are some tire marks on the trails. He wasn't able to do anything with route 409 to New Haven, this trail would not set up at all.

He then headed to Fredericton on route 209 and says that this trail is a little better - the groomer is on its' way back towards home base from Fredericton now.

Please use caution on all trails as there is a lot of ice hidden under the snow we got yesterday.

The groomer is heading out soon to see how much snow fell and how much of it stayed out of the woods. He is heading to Cornwall on route 301, New Haven on route 409 and to the railbed at Lank's on route 213.

We received word about an hour ago that there is a car on the Currie Road about a 1/3 of the way through. There was no one around the car. This is very dangerous- please use caution in this area while we deal with the situation.

The groomer left a short time ago on route 209 heading for Fredericton to smooth out the trail and fix up any drifted in areas from Wednesday night. If you are out watch for the flashing lights and give the operator a wave or a thumbs up when you meet him.

Between s morning and tonight, the groomer made to and from passes on route 209 through Crapaud, route 101 through Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden. All of our trails have been gone over between yesterday and today getting ready for the weekend traffic.

The groomer will be heading out again in the morning on route 209 to Fredericton and back to freshen up the trail that no doubt completely blew in after it was done yesterday with the wind and snow we had last night.

Yesterday the groomer completed route 209 to Fredericton and back; route 301 to Cornwall, route 213 to the railbed at Lank's and route 409 to New Haven and back to home base. Later in the evening it got very windy and we had quite a bit of snow come down and some of the New Haven trail was filling in behind the groomer.

The groomer is heading out this morning heading west on route 209 to Crapaud, route 101 to Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden and then back on route 209 through Crapaud. If you are out and about, watch for the flashing lights.

Our groomer left a little while ago after getting freshened up after reaching its first milestone in hours. It is now heading to Fredericton and back on route 209, then the plan is for it to head to Cornwall on route 301, to the railbed at Lank's on route 213 and New Haven on route 409. Hopefully there will be enough snow to pull it in and make the trails nice and smooth again. All trails could use some fresh snow so do your snow dance.

If you are out on the trails watch for the flashing lights on the groomer and give the driver a big thumbs up.

Our new groomer has reached its first milestone, so it needs a little preventative maintenance. We should have everything we need early tomorrow. Once everything has been freshened up the groomer will head out to freshen up our trails after the weekend traffic; hopefully there will be enough snow to pull in to make that happen.

The groomer left very early again this morning on route 209 to Fredericton. He is now on his way back through Brookvale on route 209 - the trails are setting up well. He will continue through on route 301 through to route 213 to the railbed at Lank's and back through route 301 to home base.

If you are heading towards Brookvale on route 301 the last field before you get to the Bannockburn Road there is a big dip in the field with a stream running through the field -please use caution in this area. If you are heading towards Cornwall the spot is not very far into the field after you cross the Bannockburn Road.

It is cold out so bundle up and enjoy this beautiful sunny day.

Our groomer has completed route 209 through Crapaud, route 101 to Albany, Borden, Kinkora and Emerald and back on route 209 through Crapaud and now heading back towards the Appin Road.

Our groomer left Very early this morning to try and get the rest of the trails ready for the weekend traffic.

He is heading west this morning on route 209 to Crapaud then onto route 101 to Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden and back on the 209. I spoke to the driver about an hour ago and he said that we did lose some snow but the western trails had more snow than some of the other trails anyway and the trails are in great shape. He said to watch out for low lying areas as some of these spots are slushy from the rain on Wednesday. If you are out for a ride watch for the flashing lights on the groomer and give the driver a thumbs up if you meet him - he works hard to maintain these trails for your enjoyment.

The groomer completed route 301 to Cornwall, route 213 to the railbed at Lank's and route 409 to New Haven.

We did lose some of the snow we had but the trails are still decent. There is some water in a low spot after you cross the Kingston Road so use caution in this area.

The groomer will be heading out early in the morning heading west to Crapaud, Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden providing there is still enough snow I these trails.

First off I would like to report that the logging operation on the trail next to the Brookvale Ski Park has shut down until Spring/Summer.

The temperature has dropped so our groomer left home base about 45 minutes ago, things are going well so he is going to kppe going, heading to Cornwall on route 301, to the railbed at Lank's on route 213 and New Haven on route 409.


Well I am happy to report that the GPS tracker is up and running in our new groomer as of this morning. The groomer left home base within the last hour and is heading to Fredericton on route 209. It is a beautiful day out there so if you are able, get out and enjoy it.

Just spoke to our groomer operator. He has groomed route 209 to Crapaud, route 101 to Borden, Albany, Kinkora and Emerald. He is now on his way back on route 101 through Kinkora, then back on the 209 through Crapaud and back to home base.

If you are out and about watch for his flashing lights and enjoy your ride!

Please remember the logging operation on the trail next to Brookvale Ski Park.

CAUTION: Be very careful going up the hill beside Brookvale ski park there is a wood porter/logging operation in this area right now - they are in and out of the trail while they are piling the wood in the Brookvale parking lot. There are signs and flags to indicate where they are on the trail.

The groomer left home base within the last hour heading west on route 209 to Crapaud, then on to route 101 to Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden. It is a little windy but it is important to get this snow packed down. If you are out and about watch for the flashing lights. Our GPS tracker should be working again tomorrow.

Good to see that we are getting some fresh snow as there are a lot of spots on the trails that can use it. Our groomer is going to head out in the next hour on route 213 to the railbed at Lank's, the 301 to Cornwall and the 409 to New Haven to get some of this snow packed down so it won't blow away on us. Will update again later today.

The groomer completed the 301 to Cornwall, the 213 to the rail bed at Lank's and the 409 to New Haven - Cornwall and New Haven trails don't have an excess of snow so use caution on these trails. The groomer also completed another trip on the 209 to Fredericton and back this evening - this trail is in great shape.

The plan is for the groomer to head west again in the morning - will update again at that time.

The groomer completed the trails through Crapaud, Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden yesterday. Some areas have more snow than others - there are some spots that haven't been widened all the way yet as they were drifting in after the groomer went through so please use caution when you are out and about. There is also a spring on your way to the Springside cabin in the woods around the Currie Road that is hard to fill in so please use caution in this area as well.

The groomer is on the go again this morning heading to Cornwall on the 301, the 213 to the railbed at Lank's and the 409 to New Haven.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


First off I want to let everyone know that the GPS on our groomer is not working at this time - we are working on having it switched over to the new groomer so you will not be able to see our track on the live feed; this will be fixed soon.

When our operator got back last night with the old groomer from doing the eastern section of our trail, there was some maintenance needed to be done to the machine. A decision was made to put the new groomer in operation today, however, there is some modifications that needed to be done to the drag so it would hook up to the new groomer - these alterations are being carried out and as soon as they are done the new groomer will be heading out to groom the western section of our trail - Crapaud, Kinkora, Emerald, Albany and Borden.

Will let keep you posted.


The groomer left again this morning from home base around 8am to start packing down the trail. He is going to complete the 301 to Cornwall; the 409 to New Haven; the 213 to the railbed at Lank's and the 405 to North River as far as the conditions will allow - there are two fields in this area that have potato drills that were not harvested this fall due to the wet weather.

Well our groomer is out and about right now packing down all the snow we got in the last day. He has gone from the cabin on the 209 to Fredericton, just turning around in Fredericton now and heading back and may do the Cornwall trail later, will keep you posted. At the moment our GPS tracker is not working so you can't see it moving on the website, we will work to have that fixed ASAP.
