Hi All,

I got to look at the preliminary Pittsburg Trail Map last night at the club meeting.

Indian Stream, (141), Roaring Brook (142), Magalloway Road (112), Trail 143, Trail 139 and some others I can't remember are all back this year.Posted Image

Logging will have very little impact on the PRRSC trail system this year. Most of the logging will be in the Dead Water area of the Swift Diamond Riders system.

Trail improvements to the Deer Mountain trail and the Shatney Mountain trail will greatly enhance the ability of the groomers to keep those trails in much better shape. The trail through the gravel pit at 4 corners to Perry Stream Road has been rerouted around the gravel pit on the east side of Perry Stream.

The signing crews have signed from the Canadian Border to the Village so far. They are now working on the Trail from the village to Canaan, VT.

All in all, if "Mother Nature" cooperates there will be plenty of great riding in Pittsburg.Posted Image

p.s. The maps should be available on or before opening day.Posted Image I will post here as soon as they are available.

The great thing is, trees will grow back without much help from us.

The next time any of you are riding between Route 3 and the Connecticut River take notice of that clear cut that was done about 10 years ago. Those trees are reaching for the sky and will be ready to cut in about another 15 years. Between Depot Camp on Indian Stream and Perry Stream their is a section that was cut about 20 years ago and it is just about ready to be cut again.

In the relatively short time, 35 years, that I have been coming to the Pittsburg area I have seen this cycle repeat itself often. The Great North Woods is a great renewable resource that regenerates itself. We should all remember that without the logging, many of our snowmobile trails would not exist. :good:

There is not a moose that doesn't like a clear cut in the spring when the young trees and brush produce the browse that they love to eat.

Thanks for the updates Mark. As far as quick forest regeneration, another great example is on the right side of Rt3 heading south up that big 3 lane hill just below Lancaster. That was cleared off in the late 80s.

Great news on the trails. I talked with you some last year. We are returning to lopstick again, this year in early Feb. Wish you were teaching the kids about the regrowth of our forests.

Here is a preliminary map of the Pittsburg Trail System for 2010-2011. Download it for a more detailed view.

There are some changes to the Indian Stream Trail 141 that is not on this map. Just follow the signs and you will be OK. Also Deer Mountain, Tail 141, has been improved to eliminate the very sharp down hill turn on the east side. And the Shatney Mountain Trail, Trail 140, has been rerouted to reduce its steepness. The groomers always had a very hard time with those two trails. Now they will not run the risk of sliding off the trail or getting hung up in the ditches.Posted Image

Yes, that little connector definitely adds a lot of options to different ways to go in that area. The logging company replaced the bridge that was unsafe for the groomers so the club is able to open that short piece of Trail 137.Posted Image

The trail signing crew has now progressed south of Indian Stream and is headed for Canaan, VT. The trail signing should be completed by the end of next week.

Junction signs and maps will be installed next in the remaining weeks before opening day. Hopefully opening day will be less than a month from now.

Still not opening of the cross over trail by coon brook area crossing over rt3 from 112? That would help with traffic going over deer mountain also. I heard that trail was coming a couple of years ago.
