Snowmobiling in Maine's Majestic JoMary/Katahdin Region

Maine's finest snowmobile trails!

The JoMary Riders Snowmobile Club maintains over 100 miles of wilderness snowmobile trails with our three commercial-grade diesel powered groomers. Our trail maintenance staff has been recognized by the Maine Snowmobile Association as being "Trail Groomers of the Year."

The Club is located on South Twin Lake, eight miles outside Millinocket, Maine, and at the edge of the KI/JoMary multiple use forest that spans the high country known as Maine's famous 100 Mile Wilderness. The region lies between Mount Katahdin to the north, Moosehead Lake to the west, Sebec Lake to the south and the Penobscot River to the east.

From the parking lot on South Twin Lake one can ride for hundreds of miles through spectacular forests and over mountains without ever passing through populated areas. Nearly all the region's snowmobile trails are on level, wide, gravel roadbeds used by Maine's logging industry. These landowners thankfully allow use of their unplowed roads during the winter months for both our groomed trails and hundreds of miles of "off-trail" riding.

Along the way there are dozens of scenic spots, moose watching opportunities, and off-trail challenges such as riding to the top of Ragged Mountain.

Some of our fantastic groomed trail riding includes:

  • The Katahdin Loop Trail - the Club is directly on the "Loop" which offers a highly scenic ride around the North and South Twin Lakes, Pemadumcook Lake, Millinocket Lake and Elbow Lake. The trail passes by the town of Millinocket, as well as many ponds, streams, ridge tops and scenic views of Mt Katahdin.
  • The Pemadumcook Parkway - a fast and scenic alternate route from South Twin to ITS86, Abol Bridge and Kokadjo.
  • The B Pond Trail - running deep into the 100 Mile Wilderness, and connecting to trails leading to Kokadjo, the historic Katahdin Ironworks and the 110 Connector between Greenville (via Gulf Hagas and the B-52 Crash site) and Brownville. There is even has a side trail to scenic Gauntlet Falls.

JoMary Riders Snowmobile Club's trail system links to several other groomed trail systems to provide riders with an endless variety of routes. Our trails link directly to these destinations: Millinocket; Kokadjo; Ragged Lake; Rockwood; Northeast Carry; Pittston Farm; Greenville; Jackman; Brownville; Schoodic Lake; Abol Bridge; Shin Pond; Chesuncook Village; Baxter State Park; Katahdin Ironworks; Gulf Hagas; and Nahmakanta

Join Us

We welcome you to enjoy our trails, and hope you will join the JoMary Riders Snowmobile Club.

Support Snowmobiling and Fight with Us

We love to snowmobile and are willing to work hard to provide the best riding opportunities possible. But that takes major support from our landowners, our Legislature, and our business community.

Our Club must be heard. The Maine Snowmobile Association (MSA) must be heard. And you must be heard. That's where you come in. Every snowmobiler must make an ongoing effort to be heard - Not just by supporting a club or the MSA. The most effective way to protect your interests is for you to show up at Legislative hearings and industry meetings, writing to your Legislators, and writing to your newspapers.

Can our industry count on your support?

Thanks! See you on the trail.

Dave Silvia Wins Groomer of the Year Award

Dave Silvia, MSA Groomer of the Year Winner, and Mike Grass, MSA Trails committee chairman

Dave Silvia (L), MSA Groomer of the Year Winner, and Mike Grass (R), MSA Trails committee chairman

Congratulations to Dave Silvia who won the MSA Groomer of the Year award this year. He received twelve nominations from our club members and members of other clubs.

Everyone who rides the JoMary trails thanks you for your outstanding work over the many years you have been key to the club’s grooming team.

One knows immediately when reaching the JoMary trail system. Dave does an absolutely fantastic job of smoothing the trails, eliminating the bumps and banks that would otherwise make the riding both miserable and dangerous. Dave will not leave these issues in place.

Dave does this at night when his excellent efforts will have time to harden up properly. This makes the trail conditions last longer, and thereby reduces the club’s overall grooming expenses. Despite this inconvenience in his personal schedule, Dave is often seen riding the trails the next day – enjoying the fruits of his labor and assessing conditions.

Dave takes extra steps to see that outhouses along the trails are shoveled out and clean – something that makes mixed group rides much more enjoyable for the ladies – and they do appreciate it.
