The Northern Forest Canoe Trail travels over 700-miles from Upstate New York to the Canadian Border in Maine. It follows lakes, streams, ponds, and rivers to connect historic old trading routes. Paddlers who travel it’s waters experience solitude, joy, and challenges. But thanks to its length, few people paddle it in one go, end to end. Most will opt to paddle in smaller pieces in days or weeks, but even this isn’t easy. Thankfully, some of the best pieces of the NFCT are do-able in a short trip, and are begging to be paddled.
