Steve  Steve Dalpe's
Trail Report


The North Country Mountaineers cover 65 miles of the VAST trail system in Coventry, Irasburg and Newport. Each trail is groomed twice a week (See schedule on left). Our goal is to update our trails report on Mondays and Thursdays. However, we will update more often when there is big news to report such as a pending snow storm etc.
We continue to e-mail our Trail Reports to members who provided us with an e-mail address. If you would like to receive these reports by e-mail contact Irene here.
