    Big shout out to Nepisiguit club for giving us some prime trails to ride on! We did a tour of northern New Brunswick and loved it. We did Bathurst area, Acadian Peninsula, Miramichi and Edmundston and Moose Valley Lodge area.

    Thanks for the great up to date website and I really enjoy the trail map that shows grooming status. I wish we had 25% of your snow. Regards

    We were out for a run to the camp on Saturday, trails were great..thanks to the groomer operators for all their work. Point of interest to sledders with blinders on, stop signs mean stop! Please use them. We followed a couple of sledders down from Arlo brook and they blew through every stop sign on the trail to the Sormany Lodge, and the signs were visible. Be safe out there.

    Message: U are all during a great job on trails this year, I have seen the best of trails ever! amazing how u can keep this up with the amount of snow we have had already this season, not to mention the two major rain falls. The new trail 503 is a beautiful trail to explore the mountains and valleys within the nepesiguit trail system,plus it makes the perfect loop from Bathurst and return for out of towners. I also think it is time to give Don Kenny a very big Thank you for all of the information given on the big white north snowmobiling world, with trail updates, event updates, weather updates and what ever else goes on with club #1 and Bathurst area.This takes a Hugh amount of dedication and time. I hear snowmobillers talking all over Atlantic Canada about reading Don Web pages. All of these things add up to a beautiful place to vacation and snowmobile with a very friendly, neighborly group of people from all over Bathurst area and Atlantic Canada. BIG THANK YOU !!!!

    Tks to you all for your great work with the trails..Club #1 The BEST !!!

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.
