Snowmobiling: Recommended Rides

  • Snowmobiling to Grand Falls on the Dead River - One of Maine's best snowmobiling destinations, Grand Falls spans nearly 100 feet across the Dead River with an imposing 40ft drop. In the heart of winter the waterfall transforms itself into a staircase of crystalline ice flows that is sure to inspire awe in even the most traveled riders. On the snowmobile trail there from Northern’s base lodge, scenic vistas include the Kennebec River, the Dead River, and the uniquely gorgeous Granny-Cap Mountain.



“We just spent 3 days at Northern Outdoors & I have never seen so much snow in my life!! It was awesome!! We snowmobiled Sunday, Feb. 12 and it was incredible!! Our guide, Greg Caruso, who we have rafted with for many years led us on the trails and it was so fun.”

Best Part of Winter

Your best bet is weekday riding, as Saturdays see a lot more riders than any other day of the week, especially when trail conditions are tops. Plus you can save big on lodging Sunday – Thursday. Here’s to a snowy winter of 2019! Let’s hope we’re sledding into April!

Is it Snowing?


Keep your eye on The Forks, Maine with our resort webcam. It’s right out front of the lodge so you can watch sledders unload their snowmobiles and ride out onto the trail. We’ve also got The Forks, Maine weather forecast, and our weekly trail conditions reports.
