Jackman Trail Report 1-29-12

I cannot believe it is almost the end of January already 😯
Anyhow, we would like to share what our guests said regarding the trails after this weekends snow storm. Of course, Friday it snowed but those who went out Saturday, Sunday and already today say that all areas north and east of Jackman are very good. Trails are smooth with plenty of snow. We did not have anyone go all the way to Rockwood but they did say 88 east was pretty good as well as most of 87 south. Biggest complaint was going south from town. Trails were very rough and need more snow. Once up on Coburn though, decent riding.
So since Jackman had such a late start with snow, do not put the sled away until the end of March as I think our snow season is going to extend this year. See you soon.

Ice fisherman reminder

If you want to be able to see your traps from your cabin deck, please ask for a lakeside cabin and tell us this when you make your reservation. You can see the cabin location on our cabins tab http://cozycovecabins.com/maine-cabins.php with pictures of your lake view from the back side cabins.

Jackman Trail Conditions 1-18-12

After last night snow, the trail-master has stated that the trail conditions to most areas are now “very Good”. Going South from town, there are still some rough areas but are still “fair to good” conditions.

There are a few changes to the trails this year: Near the border, the trail now stays on the western side of 201. Follow signs and stay clear of the windmills; Going south, there is a change to a section near Parlin; and 88 east, a section has been changed near Church Hill Stream. Just follow signage in these areas.

In town trails are good also but I fear after this weekend, it could get rough. The Lake trail is your other alternative to get out there.

The trails in Canada are open but limited. I drove up there yesterday and the ones I could see from the road, looked decent.

Hope to see you soon 🙂

Ice fishing in 12 below


Yes, our thermometer says 12 below zero but with the wind, the chill factor out on the lake is about a minus 30. 😯
That does not stop our ice fisherman: These guys set up their portable shack right out in front so if it gets too cold, a quick jot back up to their warm cabin is all that will be needed. Hope they are wearing face masks too! BRRR.

Good luck guys.

Cozy Cove Lane


We call our driveway Cozy Cove Lane which can be accessed from Elm Street or at the end of Forest Street.

During the winter months, we usually get so much snow that keeping our front entrance clear and safe, is not always possible. Snow is always falling off our roof.


SO, in the winter, our front entrance on Elm will be blocked and we ask our guests to use our back entrance to the office and lobby. Besides, it always seems that, as the quote goes, back door guests are best:!:
