Snowmobiling to Grand Falls on the Dead River
From Northern Outdoors the ride is approximately a 70-mile round trip which should provide a solid day’s ride depending on trail conditions (keep an eye on our weekly trail report for ongoing updates). Take the Kennebec River Trail up-stream (Northbound) to connect with ITS 86. Heading West on ITS 86 you will cross the Kennebec River before following the Dead River up-stream. At times deviating from the River the trail eventually meanders back towards the Dead where it makes its towering plunge at Grand Falls. For riders with little or no experience a guide may come in handy for this trip – call and check with our reservation team about lining up someone to lead the way! See: Guided Snowmobile Tours.
Trail groomers hard at work on ITS 86 after a solid winter storm (see trail groomers in action.)
Here’s a video of a Grand Falls trail ride with Northern Outdoors’ own Zach Davis (who can’t stand next to the Dead River and not talk a little bit about Dead River rafting.) Enjoy, and think snow!
