Previous Springside Trail Conditions

All of the Springside trails have been freshly groomed since it turned cold yesterday afternoon and they are ready for the heavy weekend traffic. Reports are they are in great shape.

We will monitor the trail conditions and send the groomer out again as needed before the weather gets too mild.

Please ride on the right side of the trail and not down the middle - the trails will hold up better and it is much safer for everyone.

Sled safe everyone.

The groomer left yesterday after supper and completed a full pass on route 209 through Brookvale to the railbed in Fredericton, back towards home base and then headed west on route 209 through Crapaud to the railbed in Albany and back to home base fueled up and then headed out on the 209 to route 301 towards Cornwall, and completed 1/2 of one of the New Haven loops on route 409.

He was on the go again early this morning and will complete both loops on route 409 in New Haven, route 405 to North River and back, the 213 to the railbed at Lanks and back to the 301 through Cornwall and then back to home base.

The groomer left at supper time yesterday and first went to the end of the Appin Road and back to fill the ruts made by the car that was abandoned there yesterday- that was the second vehicle that was towed off of our trails this weekend!!

He then filled up with fuel and headed out on route 209 to the 301 to Cornwall, route 213 to the railbed at Lank’s and back to the 301, to North River and back on route 405, around both loops in New Haven on route 409, back on the 301 to the 209 and back to home base this morning.

Sled safe and enjoy the trails.




The groomer left in the early afternoon and went west on route 209 through Crapaud and today he was able to groom all the way to the railbed in Albany - there is now enough snow in the last two fields after the Mt. Tryon Road. He then went back the way he came in order to make a complete pass of this trail, and then back to home base. All of Springside trails have been groomed after the storm on Tuesday. He will be heading out again in the early morning hours to make another pass on route 209 to the railbed in Fredericton and back to home base. The trails are in great shape and we will monitor them and the weather to seen when he heads out again.

Get out and enjoy the trails!

The groomer is on the go again as it cold enough to run during the day. He headed west on route 209 towards Crapaud a little while ago. Will update later on the condition of the trails in that direction.

The groomer was out again late last night into this morning. He completed both loops in New Haven on route 409, route 301 to Cornwall, route 405 to North River and back to Cornwall, route 213 to the railbed at Lanks, back onto the 301 to route 209 and back to home base.

Reports are that they trails are in great shape.

The groomer was out earlier today. He left home base and headed out on route 209 through Brookvale and went to the railbed in Fredericton and back for one complete pass on this trail. He then headed out on route 209 to route 301 towards Cornwall turning off the Quinn Road to route 409 in New Haven. He completed on of the New Haven loops and parked the machine for a little while waiting for it to get cold again. This trail is in great shape.
There were some sleds over it and the trail seemed to be holding up well.

He will be heading out again late tonight to complete the second loop on the New Haven trail route 409, the 405 to North River and back to the 301 to Cornwall, the 213 to the railbed at Lanks, back on the 301 to the 209 to home base.

Last night the groomer completed route 209 to the railbed in Fredericton and back and the report is that this trail is in great shape. He then headed west on route 209 through Crapaud as far as the Mt. Tryon Road, he did not cross the road as those last two fields leading to the railbed in Albany need more snow. The report is that theses trails are in good shape, they have snow but not an over abundance of it. So keep doing your snow dance- we need more!!

The groomer was out late last night tidying up the trials in the central area - the 301 to Cornwall, the 213 to the rail bed at Lank’s and back, to the Trans Canada in North River on the 405, around New Haven on the 409 and back on the 301 to the 209 and back to home base.

He is on the go again now on route 209 heading to the rail bed in Fredericton and back towards home base and then he will head towards Crapaud and see how far he can go depending on how much snow is still around. The trails seem to be holding up, but we need more!!!

Enjoy your Islander Day tomorrow.

The groomer was out again last night grooming the 209 through Crapaud as far as the bridge- he didn’t go any further as reports are that there is not an abundance of snow past that point. He then headed back on route 209 through to the railbed in Fredericton and back to home base. The trails are in the best shape they can be with the amount of snow that we have. Get out and enjoy them and do your snow dance cause we need more of the white stuff.

The groomer left in the early morning hours to freshen up the central area trails for tonight. He left home base on route 209 then onto the 301 to Cornwall, the 213 to the railbed at Lank's and back to the 301, the 405 to North River and back to the 409 around New Haven, back to the 301 then to the 209 to Home Base. The trails are in good shape but there are spots that could use more snow so ride safe.


The groomer is currently on its way back to home base on route 209. When he makes it back he will have made two complete passes of all of the Springside trails; the first one with the compactor on and the most recent with the drag (Route 301 to Cornwall, the 213 to the railbed at Lank's, the 405 to North River, the 409 around New Haven, the 209 through Crapaud, the 209 to the railbed in Fredericton and back again on the 209 to Home Base).


The report is that most of the trails are in great shape however, there are a few bare spots through Crapaud and, the groomer only went as far as the last field before the Mt. Tryon road because after you cross this road heading to the railbed in Albany those last two fields don't have enough snow.

Sled safe.

The groomer has completed one pass of all Springside trails with the compactor on. There is one exception, he was not able to go all the way to the railbed in Albany because after you cross the last road heading to the railbed, the last two fields don't have enough snow. Most of the trails are in great shape and are setting up nice with the cold weather, however, there are a few bare spots so please keep your eyes open when out and about.

The groomer left again earlier this morning with the drag on. Leaving home base on the 209 then to the 301 to Cornwall, the 213 to the railbed at Lank's, to the 405 to North River and the 409 around New Haven.

If you are out and about and see any of the groomer operators, remember to give them a big thumbs up for all of their great work.




The groomer completed route 301 to Cornwall, route 213 to the railbed at Lank's and back to the 301, route 405 to North River and route 409 around New Haven and back to home base yesterday/last night.

The groomer left again earlier this morning on route 209 through Crapaud on his way to Albany.

The groomer left home base early this afternoon with the compactor on the 209 and them onto the 301 to Cornwall. Turned off on the 213 to the rail bed at Lank’s and back to the 301 after fueling up. He completed the 409 around the New Haven trail and is now on the 405 to North River. He will go as far as he can tonight. Will update on the trail conditions when I get the next update from the operator.

The groomer left late yesterday afternoon from home base on route 209 and went to Cornwall on the 301, the railbed at Lanks on the 213, North River on the 405, completed both loops in Clyde River on the 413 and back to home base on the 209.

The groomer left again a short time ago on route 209 heading to the railbed in Fredericton to see how the conditions are that direction.

Please note there are some bare spots and the operator did his best to pull snow in where it was needed. He also did his best to knock the tops off the plowed fields as he was going along. If you are out be aware that we could use some more snow and sled safe.


The Springside groomer and drag are ready to go as soon as we get enough snow to groom. We realize that everyone is getting anxious to get out on the trails, we are too! Do your snow dance while you are waiting for Mother Nature to send us the white stuff.

For those of you who have been able to get out for a ride, please remember to respect the private property that we have the privilege of traveling on, and stay on the marked trail.
