ON THE TRAIL WITH NORTHERN OUTDOORS
Maine has 14,000 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and our sled resort sits right at the center. Ride to Moosehead Lake, Eustis, Jackman or tour our nearby snowmobiling destinations: Moxie Falls, Coburn Mountain, Grand Falls. Our trails in The Forks combine mountain views with woodsy curves… and lots of darting deer.
North Country Rivers’ base resort complex; located in the upper Kennebec Valley Region of Maine, is renowned for having “the best snowmobiling in the east”. This region receives an annual snowfall of over 10-feet! The region also contains some of the most beautiful and pristine wilderness in the United States.
Our resort base complex is located right “on” Maine’s Interconnecting Trail System (the ITS). This system is comprised of approximately 13,000 miles of groomed trails; stretching to all the way to Canada. The North Country Rivers base complex in Bingham, Maine, is on the ITS 87 portion of this trail system. Our location, and being in proximity to this portion of the ITS, allows us to ride north to the Forks and Jackman (and into Canada), west to the Rangeley Lakes region, and even northeast to the Moosehead Lake region (and even Baxter State Park). This trail, and the many feeder trails, simply offer hundreds and hundreds of miles of open terrain, incredible scenery, unlimited trip potential, and awesome riding for all skill levels.
Many options for single and multi-day loop trips exist (beginning and ending at our base complex). And if you rent one of our cozy Maine log cabins on the Kennebec River, you’ll be able to return from any trip and park your sled right at your front door! North Country Rivers is simply THE best option for a winter snowmobile adventure vacation!
