Snowmobiling Trip Millsfield Pond Errol, NH
Enter The NH Snowmobile Forum
Our snowmobile trip to Errol New Hampshire was great! One
of the better snowmobile trips we have had so far. We stayed at a private
camp on Millsfield Pond in Errol which was directly on the groomed trail system.
We arrived late Friday night (March 2) around 10:00pm and
parked just off Rt.16 where we had a 7 mile ride just to get to the camp. We
packed our stuff on a jet sled and headed in. When we got to the camp we dumped
off our stuff and everyone was anxious to go riding, so we headed out around
11:00pm and found the trails in the areas were just groomed and were the most
amazing trails I have ever been on. They were must smoother than the roads we
just drove on to get there. The snowmobile club in Errol,
The Umbagog Snowmobile Association
did miracles with those trails.
We headed back to camp around 2:00am and planned a trip to
the Sno-Deo at Coleman State Park in West Stewartstown, New Hampshire.
Saturday morning we headed out early and took snowmobile
trail #5 to the Sno-Deo. We have never been there before, so didn't know what to
expect. We soon realized that there were a lot more snowmobiles in the area than
we thought. It looked like a Wal-Mart parking lot filled with sleds! There was
not much to do there. We walked around and got a good look at everything. The
antique snowmobiles were definitely the most interesting part of the day. And we
also got to see the new line of snowmobiles for Artic Cat, Polaris and Ski Doo.
The radar run looked like fun, but I must admit, I am not much of a snowmobile
racer yet, maybe next year. We stayed for about an hour and headed out only to
find NH Fish and Game handing out tickets to people. We must have passed the
test as we came out ok.
Sunday was more quiet as everyone was sore from the 200
mile weekend and no one had the energy to get back out there. We packed up and
got ready to go home. We did find the energy for just one more blast around the
As we got back to the Rt. 16 parking lot and packed the
trailers we were blessed with the pleasure of seeing the sweetest thing ever. A
group of snowmobiles going by. One of them decided that we needed to be covered
in snow so he spun his sled and nailed the gas, as he went by he not only missed
us with the spray of snow, he also rolled his sled into the ditch. Once we knew
he was ok, we tried to control our laughter but failed miserably. Who ever you
were, you sure made our day... Thanks!!! LOL

Tips to Remember:
A snowmobile trail groomer travels at an average speed of only
5-8 MPH. Snowmobile riders need to use "extreme caution" on the
trails and always be on the lookout for groomers. Many of the
grooming machines are exceptionally wide and long, so you as the
snowmobile driver need to give the right-of-way, and always slow
down when approaching a groomer.
- Most cell phones do not work in Errol, NH.
