Need to Know
The SLSC website doesn't have an accessible map of the trails, but one may be purchased through their website. Maps may also be purchased at Country Goods and Groceries, in East Wakefield.
The Seven Lakes Snowmobile Club maintains the southernmost section of Corridor #19. The trail starts at a sign at the south end of Belleau Lake and heads south down a dirt road. It crosses Ballards Ridge Road and enters the woods. The trail either parallels or follows Pray Hill Road, while passing a few other branching trails. There is a small historical cemetery on Pray Hill.
The trail turns right and heads down to Pine River Pond Road, then rises to Pick Pocket Road and turns left to follow beneath the powerlines. It crosses Pickpocket Road and follows the dirt road (Province Lake Road) on the opposite side. It then follows Province Lake Road for a ways and meets up with Province Lake Trail South
(on the right).
From here, the trail follows Simon Hill Road. It reaches the south end of Grape Corner Spur
(on the right) and then passes the north end of Grape Corner Spur
(on the right) and an alternate spur (on the left). From here, the trail follows Molly Philbrick Road. The main trail turns left off Molly Philbrick Road and passes over Clough Road.
Here, the main route continues left, or right will take you on the Wilkinson Swamp Alternate
. The trail reconnects with the upper portion of the Wilkinson Swamp Alternate
(on the right). The trail takes a left onto Drake Road and passes by an excellent view of Huckin's Pond. It veers right (following sno-mo signs) back into a more wooded area until it reaches a fork in the trails. The left fork will show a do not enter sign, whereas the right will show a one way direction. After arriving back to the main trail, it descends down to Corridor #19 connector (on the right). This connector takes you to a small parking area.
The trail continues through a logged area, then takes a right turn. This section of Corridor #19 ends at White Mountain Highway/ Route 16. This is where the Seven Lakes Snowmobile Club's jurisdiction ends. For a continuation of Corridor #19, please refer to the Ossipee Valley Snowmobile Club map.
