    Hi Guys: Just want to thank you for your daily trails report that I follow every day even if I am in Florida for the winter, I will be returning first days of April, from this morning's report I am encouraged to learn that you expect we will be using the trails up to July, I appreciate the humor there, but until end of April would be great. Again thank you, Roland

    hi there: Travelled from McDougall, Ontario, via a couple of days at Grand Falls and able to enjoy the trails around Bathurst since last Sunday, March 12. Thanks for the huge effort in keeping the trails smooth and in particular for the constantly updated message on trail conditions. From Ontario it is difficult to know how trail conditions are, as the interactive map only shows the grooming schedules. When I saw the update on March 9 suggested the rain had not damaged the trails, plans to visit were a go. I have posted pictures of my travels here on a forum which have received positive comments and I think you're going to have a lot of visitors in the future! regards Jim

    Just like to say thank you very much for 10 days of fantastic snowmobiling on your trail system. Your trails like usual were awesome and so was the weather. I was thinking about making a third trip up. 
    What is your best month for trails historically February is March any good?

    The boys and I just spent four super great days on your trails in the Bathurst area.Trails were all the very best.Thank you and your crew for making all this possible.

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.
