It really is winter in Maine!   Sled rides require classic conditions, and Leonard’s Mills in Bradley doesn’t have that at the moment.  The ice storm left  a thick ice crust on top of powder, under more snow. That was enough to make it dangerous for horses breaking through.  Then with Monday’s rain freezing everywhere and a forecast of more  rain this weekend, the first rides are now planned for Jan. 19, but please call 944-2999 to check on that as the date gets closer.   Rides are scheduled every Sunday until March 2, but the trail conditions will be a major question from week to week.  Keep checking that number for updates.
