Snowmobiling in The Forks

At the Center of Maine’s Best Trails

Sitting in the center of Maine with groomed access to Maine’s 14,000 mile trail network, The Forks area is one of the best places to snowmobile in the East. Trails wind through the Appalachian Mountain range, with breathtaking views and common sightings of moose and deer. Check out a trail map, plan your route – and don’t forget your camera!

The Forks Area Trail Network: Unparalleled Maine Scenery

The Forks Area Trails Club maintains approximately 100 miles of top quality groomed trails and connects to the larger Maine Interconnecting Trail System (ITS) 86, 87, & 89. Extending north to Jackman, west to Eustis, east to Moosehead Lake, and south to Bingham, snowmobiling in The Forks is Maine snowmobiling at its best, with varying terrain that makes for exciting riding and spectacular scenery. Vast pine, spruce, and birch forests, frozen rivers and lakes, mountain ranges, and quaint logging towns all provide outstanding adventure. Our central location in the heart of Maine’s prime snowmobiling region makes Northern Outdoors an ideal hub from which to explore.

Or cruise over to the bustling village of Greenville on the shores of beautiful Moosehead Lake, with its quaint shops, local restaurants, and friendly people. Wherever your destination (here are a few of our favorites), you’ll discover The Forks as a convenient hub with miles of well-groomed, well-signed trails.

Trail Grooming with Northern Outdoors

Grooming. It’s the single most important thing in snowmobiling (aside from SNOW!) – the element that defines how good your day is. That’s why we put so much effort into our trail grooming. Northern Outdoors has invested nearly a quarter million dollars in the purchase of two state-of-the-art Tucker Terra trail groomers. These machines feature the latest in trail grooming technology and are based on site, ensuring the trails leading from The Forks Adventure Resort are always in top shape. Our groomers are part of The Forks area fleet of five turbodiesel groomers that hit the trails regularly to provide riders with some of the smoothest riding anywhere. Give the grooming crew a “thumbs up” when you see them on the trails – and don’t forget to support the trails you ride by joining a club!

Book a trailside cabin, condo, or room in The Forks, and connect to Maine’s 14,000 miles of groomed trails.
