    Myself and 3 friends were on the trails this weekend and had a blast, The trails were not groomed like highways but if people want that they should buy a car and drive the highways ,It was the best riding in virgin snow I have ever done.Keep up the great work and ignore the naysayers. By the way, we are not kids, My group were all late 50's SUPER WORK

    I just spent three days on your trails with my 16 year old son and three freinds. We put on 800km and would have to say it was some of the best groamed trails I have ever been on. All the hours you put in grooming really made the trip a memorable one for us. This was our first time leaving NS to sled but defiantly will not be our last, we are already planning to come back second week of March. I also enjoy reading your post each day that you have to keep everyone updated on what is going on. I would say in the 800km we put on we only came across two sleds that were going too fast for a norrow trail. Keep up the good work I'm sure everyone appreciates all the hard work that everyone in the area clubs put in. The trails don't get that good with out a lot of time and effort put into them.

Nepisiguit Club #1

The Nepisiguit Snowmobile  club #1, which is the oldest snowmobile club in the province, has the largest membership in New Brunswick with 949 registered last season (826 for 15/16),  (849 for 14/15), (794 for 13/14), (809 for 12/14), (765 for 11/12), (579 for 07/08) with a strong Nova Scotia and PEI contingent and maintains a trail system about 400 Kilometers in length. The club started in 69/70 with one small groomer with membership fees of $10 and groomed  about 175 Km in the area between Brunswick Mines (Old Theriault Rd), Highway 430 (Nine Mile East Rd), and the now Caribou Mines.

Trails were designated and signed by such names as Caribou, Bear, Fox, Rabbit and Beaver. Log shelters were built along the trails and were also designated with animal names. One unique feature at the beginning was that all traffic was in one direction. It made for safer trails as the drags were only so wide. The trails were made in a series of 5 loops and one could vary their trip in any combination of loops as they so wished. We only use a small percentage of these trails today in our present system< namely: Nine Mile East, Nine Mile North, Rio, and the Forty Four. As time progressed  the trails expanded closer to Nepisiguit Falls where the Bathurst Fish and Game Ass. had built a lodge which is currently the Nepisiguit Sports Lodge. Then it progressed into Bathurst to the Atlantic Host Motor Inn.  Then the trail system blew up into the Chaleur area ( we were all one club back then) and down to the Miramichi to the Belfont area where there was a thriving club house.

Of course everything was dependent on the volunteer. Some of the founders were Howard Doucet , Bud Kenny, John Labonville  and there were a few more, plus loads of volunteers.
