Jackman Trail report January 9

In town Jackman did not get the 6-10 inches of snow that was in the forecast last weekend but we did get about 2 in town.  The good news is that in the higher elevations, where the trails are, about 6-8  .inches fell.  Then this past week we have been snowing off and all, giving us here, about an inch or so a day.

As you can see from these photo taken (I think around Long Pond) by Riverview yesterday, the trails are in great shape. All the trails have been groomed. They found some rough areas but all in all, not bad considering.  North of town seemed to be the best ride at this time.

The weather forecast is calling for rain throughout the state on Saturday, but will that happen here in Jackman?   One never knows. It seems like the weatherman change the forecast every day.   Keep doing the snow dance.

Ice fishing in Jackman

Even if there is not a lot of snow to ride, the one thing fun to do in Jackman is Ice fishing.  The ice on Big Wood is about a foot thick.  The ice shacks have been out there since mid December.  I even saw trucks out last weekend.

This little family enjoyed their day out on the ice and caught a few keepers too. I wonder if it was their first time “getting the big one”

Remember, Free fishing days this year are on February 15-16.  Give it a try.

December 2019 trail report

Hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to

a great new year in 2020.

Hopefully as you sang all the Christmas songs you included and sang loudly the chorus of “Let it snow, let it snow let it snow”

Now for the snowmobile trails: They are still closed.   We have a decent base of ice in most areas but there simply is no snow to groom or to ride on.   The trail-master has said we need about 6-8 inches before he will open the trails.

SO now is the time to do that snoopy snow dance.

 

Need a Get Away?

Most of the leaves have fallen, ATV trails will close in a couple weeks, and unless you like to hunt, there is not much to do in Jackman at this time of year.

You do not have to be an outdoor enthusiast of any kind to enjoy the Jackman Region or your stay at Cozy Cove Cabins now or any time of the year.

When I ask what someone plans to do when staying with us, many of them simply say:  “get out of dodge” or “get away from our hectic pace” or ” reconnect with each other”.  Or some just say “absolutely nothing”

These are common statements all year long but even now, when the leaves are almost all off the trees, there is a certain beauty to be seen at Cozy Cove Cabins, with just an echo of fall that is left.

Of course there are view of the water and blue skies

Campfires and sunsets

Or maybe just turn off the TV, shut down your cell and play a game of cribbage or monopoly, or sit and talk with your S.O. or the kids.

 We hope you take the time to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, any time of the year.

Colors of Autumn

It seemed like it was a slow start then all at once, the fall colors started to show. We are at peak right now. Soon the reds will go away then more of the orange and then the yellow.  |

This was taken last week at “The Falls”

And this one at Attean Lookout.

And here is one from the lookout looking over Attean Pond during the day.

And then at sunset.

Thank you Karla and Kim for sharing these beautiful photos.
