Aroostook County is a county located in the U.S. state of Maine. In 2000, its population was 73,938. It is the largest county in the state. Its seat is Houlton. In land area, Aroostook County is the largest U.S. county east of the Mississippi River. Among residents of Maine, it is often referred to simply as "the County."

As Maine's northernmost county, its northernmost town, Estcourt Station, is therefore also the northernmost town of New England and of the continental U.S. east of the Great Lakes.

Aroostook County is known for its potato crops, as well as its French culture. In the northernmost region of the county, which borders Madawaska County, New Brunswick, a majority of residents are bilingual. In some communities, it is difficult to find employment for those who do not speak both English and French. Employers such as pharmacies, hospitals, banks, and post offices encounter this most frequently. The county is a hub for wind power, with so much being produced that the county will soon have excess to sell once it connects to the New England Power Grid.

Aroostook County Trail Report
February 7, 2010

Greetings from Aroostook County.........

Wow……….what a great sledding weekend we had last weekend……….and right now projects are doing a great job keeping trails in good shape despite the fact that Philly and DC have been getting all our snow……..although we certainly aren’t as bad off as Vancouver !! The recent flurries have helped cover up some bare spots in fields and all projects are reporting grooming with good conditions………..great reports from riders too!

ITS 81 All sections of ITS 81 have been groomed this week and are ready for traffic. Remember coming from north or south in the Mars Hill/ Bridgewater area you will need to pick up the Number Nine Lake Trail as 81 west is closed in this section due to logging…….heading north everyone has been out on the border trail doing renovations from the festival and reports are good. Going south through to Ox Bow, Shin Pond and Mattagamon conditions are good. Rt. 71D over Grand Lake Sebois is open offering a loop ride.

ITS 83 has been groomed this week all the way through. In Caribou RT 83A across the Aroostook River to hookup with ITS 88 out of Ft. Fairfield and Presque Isle has been opened. Houlton, Island Falls and Sherman are reporting grooming and trails in good shape with Aroostook County flurries providing a fresh cover.

ITS 85 All projects reporting grooming with good reports on conditions. Ox Bow has reopened Rt. 71A the loop off 85 between Ox Bow and Ashland. Watch for wildlife. Up north Twin Lakes and Sly Brook both have all the connector trails open and groomed.

ITS 88 is in good shape with no reports of any problems and it makes a great connection between ITS 81 and ITS 85 in the central region.

ITS 90 Remember this route has been rerouted back to the southern route between Rt. 105 and Portage. Thanks to Seven Islands for the great cooperation. Watch for signage. The flurries have helped Ft Fairfield to capture some snow in the fields. Also there is a new logging operation opening just west of the Rt. 105 intersection.

ITS 92 open and groomed with limited traffic. There has been a little loop trail opened from St. Francis to give some rider options. Remember that customs is open limited hours so check ahead before you venture out as there are no services for about 42 miles once you leave Allagash. 92B remains closed due to logging but 92A is open and groomed.

ITS 105 is in good shape from Van Buren to the Squa Pan area. Rt 94 off 105 is open and groomed as well as Rt. 89 which runs from 94 to Caribou and ITS 83. Pleasant Ridge Runners have their trails open including 100 which connects to Rt 89 as well as 81A between Limestone and Hamlin making for some nice small loops.

ITS 120 is groomed in its entirety and provides a great ride but remember Rt 92B is not open (what is referred to as the Lincoln Trail) Remember there is logging around so use caution.

Active logging:

  • ITS 81 west of Mars Hill this section closed….see above.
  • Rt. 81A and Rt. 74 around Squa Pan
  • Rt 75 right at the ITS 88 intersection
  • ITS 86 west of St. Croix Lake
