Hey,
Wondering if there's any good riding in Maine that's close to seacoast NH.  I live in Portsmouth so it would be easy to take 95 for a couple of hours instead of going 3+ hours to Colebrook\Pittsburgh NH.  Heard that Moosehead area and Rangeley is great but its a long ride!!!

im in portland, maine, and mooshead is an AWESOME place to ride.  i usually ride around falmouth, cumblerland, take trips upto auburn area and all around.  there is trails right near my house that take u right to the sebago area.  go to sebago lake area, or fryeburg, auburn, desert of maine, anywhere near there, those are some awesome places to ride too.  probly an hour and a half away from  you, auburn and fryeburg are probly 2hours.

Sounds good.  An hour and a half away would be great for day rides.

Hope you're not driving yourself too crazy with that sled project!!!  Did you get the clutch  back on?

The Rangeley/Moosehead areas are definitely your best bet for consistantly good riding, but if you are looking for something a little closer, the Sebago Lake loop trail is a good day trip (provided old man winter cooperates&#33

yellosled, i ordered all the parts i was missing, it came to around 50 bucks.  waste of money cuz of my own stupidness, but they had to be bought in order for it to work.  i returned my goodwin clutch kit, because im getting pipes and stuff, so im gonna have them make me one just for my sled and the mods on it.  ive got all my parts EXCEPT the suspension coming friday or before.  so everything will be put back together this weekend, except the rear skid because i have to wait on the suspension.  after i get the rear back together ive gotta take apart the front and put the new suspension on there too.  quite the project but when im riding i will sure be happy with it.  if it put it back together right. lol.

I know you dont want to travel far, but you owe it to yourself tho try northen Maine as well if you have not been. The "County" is awesome, the best riding in the northeast.

I've ridden all over Maine and NH and trails are the fastest up in the county. Its a long way but it's "highway" snowmobile trails.

I live on Sebago Lake and the trails here are good if you head north up to Bethel on ITS 80 or 89. The trails I hit the most are Rangeley- Eustis mountain area, Moosehead Lake area and Millinocket area.

A very awesome ride is from Pittston Farm (northwest of Moosehead) to Chamberlain and the Allagash Wilderness.  Beware this area has little trail markings and there are NO gas stations or stores anywhere. Dangerous riding if you do not know where you are.

Yellosled, I will agree with all these guys, I drive up from Boston to Rangeley, Jackman, and Moosehead even if it is just an over nighter, the trails up there are consistantly good, plenty of snow, even on bad seasons.
  This season I will be trying Pittsburg, NH mostly. A freind bought a place up there just for sledding. Now I will have a chance to compare 4-5 hrs to Northern, NH to 5-6 hrs to Northern, ME
