Casino Night – Saturday, September 30

The club purchased a new Can-Cam groomer.  To help pay for it, we are holding a Casino Night as a fund-raising event.  Cash bar.  Sponsors are offering prizes and auction items, along with funding a professional crew to run the tables and provide snacks.  100% of your ticket price, bids on the silent auction and other donations go towards the new groomer.  We have sold over 50 tickets so far and have room for 100.  Hope to see you at the event.   Click here for more information and to buy tickets.  



Hello folks, we have started our annual Fall trail work for 2023. We need more volunteers as we are off to a slow start due to rain and low turn out. Please donate a few Saturdays to your club. We meet at 8 am at the MSC garage on Highway Garage Road which is located 1/4 mile down Moultonboro Neck Road.
There are 50 miles of trails that need to be walked, cleared of trees and brush. Later in the process we will put up signs, ropes and some bridge work etc. If you have an ATV or UTV please bring it, just contact us  at “” ahead of time. We work on the trails every Saturday right up until it is time to start grooming.  The club has loppers and chainsaws but you can bring your own if that is what you are more comfortable with. Come meet and become one of the volunteers who make riding possible in our town. BTW, it’s not all work!

3/11/23 Trails – TRAILS CLOSED

CLICK HERE to scroll down to specific trail status and conditions

2023 Season

3/11: Trails Closed.

3/9: Closing east side today.  Red Hill groomed last night and is good.  Checking other trails.

3/8: Groomed Evergreen, Lees, Village and Greens Basin Trails.  Deep base in some spot, bare ground and mud holes in other spots.

3/6: 9″ on Saturday (3/4) but warm weather is keeping some trails thin and big mud puddles are effectively closing several stretches of trails.

3/1: Total of about a foot in the past week.  West side is rolled.

2/26: Another 3″+ are improving conditions.  Still ice under and thin base.

2/23: With 4-6″ of new snow and cold temps on the way, we opened the gates today.  Conditions are marginal and water bars are hidden.

2/18: Trails remain closed, including west side of Ossipees.  Forecast for late next week looks interesting but it will take a lot of snow to reopen the trails.  We’ll see what March brings.

2/13: Trails are closed until conditions improve.  Temperatures are forecast to be well above normal for the week.

2/9: Warm temperatures and rain have damaged the trails.  They are soft, muddy and only remain open due to the fishing derby.  Trails will close on Sunday evening, until if/when winter returns.

2/4: Temps reached -17 overnight.  Everything was groomed by Friday noon then groomers were put away for the cold.  C15 from Ambrose to Castle Parking lot still closed.  Elsewhere, frozen water bars, puddles and icy streams down some trails.  Water access was punky a few days ago, before the deep freeze.

2/2: Cold temps have firmed up the water-bars.  Grooming will resume today, then suspend over the weekend due to forecasted temps near zero.  Base is thin in some areas with occasional bare spots and frozen water-bars.  No significant snow in the forecast.

1/30: Grooming is suspended until things freeze up again.  Riding in the low-land trails is not recommended.

1/29: Red Hill and Ossipees remain best riding.  Warm temperatures and sled traffic took its toll yesterday.  The east side trails are closed due to excessive mud holes.  Many of the lake entrances are reported to have open water holes.

1/28: Most trails have been packed or groomed, except for the powerline swamp.  With temperatures in forecast to hit 40 today, we recommend staying off the trails.

1/27: Cold temperatures overnight firmed up the slush from yesterday.  Packing and grooming will continue today.  Conditions will improve with traffic and additional grooming but more snow and continued cold weather is needed.

1/26: Two inches of snow/slush and then rain fell.  Lake ice is showing lots of wet and punky areas.  Will be resuming packing today.

1/25 PM: After a day of grooming, lots of trails are packed, many are not and most gates are open.

1/25 Wednesday AM: With over a foot on the ground and more forecast, the trails opened this morning.  It is a soft opening.  There are still gates closed, unpacked trails, water bars and unfrozen swamps to content with.  Early season conditions to be sure.  Volunteers are working on all issues.

1/20 Friday PM: We received 2″-6″ Thursday night and Friday.  Probably more in the mountains.  Not enough to take our equipment out to groom, so trails remain not open.  More snow is forecast for Sunday night and perhaps Wednesday night.  We will see.  The equipment is gassed up and ready to go.  We’ll keep you informed here.

1/19 – Storms are forecast for Thursday and Sunday nite and long range hints at a storm next Wednesday.  The club equipment is in top repair, gassed up and ready to go.  At the moment, we are planning to pack and check trails starting Monday, 1/23.
