Welcome to the
Fayette Ridge Riders Snowmobile Association!
The Fayette Ridge Riders Snowmobile Association (formerly the Rainbow Riders) was established in 1974. Its members have been working since then to maintain 24 miles of trails, including the ITS 115 trail as well as local snowmobile trails within the town of Fayette, Maine. This includes acquiring landowner permission, clearing trails in the fall, maintaining bridges, posting signs, as well as grooming the trails once snow season arrives. None of this could be accomplished without the help of dedicated volunteers!
In addition to trail maintenance, the Fayette Ridge Riders work to raise additional funds in order to be able to help others. The Ridge Riders donated a rescue sleigh to the Fayette Fire Department, and also make annual donations to the Fayette Fire Department and the Pine Tree Camp, a summer camp experience for children and adults with disabilities. Once again, volunteers are the key!
The Fayette Ridge Riders are dependent on the involvement of its members.
New faces and new ideas are always welcome.
Members don’t even have to be snowmobilers!
DID YOU KNOW?
There 24 miles of snowmobile trails in Fayette.
Many landowners graciously give permission to the Fayette Ridge Riders for trails to pass through their property.
These trails need to be maintained in the fall (clearing fallen trees, maintaining bridges, posting signs, etc.)
During snow season, the trails need to be groomed.
Trail maintenance is done by VOLUNTEERS who are members of the Fayette Ridge Riders.
The Fayette Ridge Riders (formally the Rainbow Riders) have been an organization for snowmobilers since the 1950’s.
Currently, there are only a handful of active members to keep the trails open, many of them are getting too old to keep up with all the work required.
WITHOUT ADDITIONAL HELP, THE FAYETTE RIDGE RIDERS MAY BE FORCED TO DISBAND THIS FALL! WITHOUT THE ASSOCIATION, PERMISSION FROM LANDOWNERS FOR TRAILS BECOMES INVALID, SO… THERE WILL BE NO TRAILS IN FAYETTE!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
