    Bingham is located on Maine's Interconnecting Trail System (the ITS). This system is made up of approximately 12,000 miles of groomed trails - stretching to all the way to Canada. Bingham, Maine, is on the ITS 87 portion of this trail system. This portion extends north to the Forks and Jackman (and on to Canada), west to Rangeley Lakes, and northeast to Moosehead Lake (and Katahdin).

    If you are hunting there is no better way to get around the almost un-hunted virgin rabbit cover in the area around Bingham.

    Snowshoes!?

    In northern Maine, the snow can be amazingly deep in March. In many places this year, the base was 3-5 feet! some winters there are repeated freezes and thaws that create thick layers above the base, making for easy snowshoe travel. Other winters (like this year), the snow was soft.. causing us to struggle with almost every step.

    We learned a particular useful lesson concerning the small, 6-inch spruce trees. They are not really 6 inches tall, even though that's all you can see through the snow. In fact they are often buried under 3-4 feet of snow. If you step near the top of one of these trees, you are likely to sink up to your waste, or maybe even your neck!
