Zach brings us another information packed Snowmobile Conditions Ride Report from Northern Outdoors in The Forks, Maine. The Forks area got 3"-5" of snow this past week which gave the groomers the material they needed to fill in some of the woods trail thin spots. Those thin spots are few and...

THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 2/4/2016 We received about 4” of snow on Wednesday, followed by just a little rain. Temperatures are warm today . . . . in the mid-30’s but will cool off tonight and through the weekend. We will attempt to groom tonight, Friday and Saturday to get things as best as...

THE FORKS TRAIL REPORT 1/27/2016 No new snow since last weeks report. Trails are holding up well, considering the minimal snow. Groomers have been out on all sections this week and we will hit things again, as needed, on Thurs, Fri and Sat nights. Generally speaking, sections of the trail on unplowed roads are...

We have received about 18” of snow in the past week. This will provide a great base to get things going for the winter. Groomers have been out panning all trail sections, yesterday and today. Generally speaking, sections of the trail on unplowed roads are in good shape. Woods trails...

When my daughter decided to have a winter wedding just days after Christmas at Northern Outdoors this mother-of-the-bride was a little skeptical but I was also quite wrong! Hannah and Nicholas had a really lovely ceremony in front of the massive fireplace in the main lodge which was beautiful. Northern Outdoors...

This year (my seventh with this outfitter) I returned to Northern Outdoors and had a very special year. I've always enjoyed hunting here, great stand locations, their food and beverages (brewery)are excellent. Add the camaraderie, hard working guides that are good people that know there business and Hunting in Maine...

We has so much fun on our vacation with Northern Outdoors. We went white water rafting and Kris our guide was very cool, funny, and made us 1st timers very comfortable. We decided while we were enjoying some of the awesome blueberry beer after the rafting that we would like to...

The day our family scheduled to run the Penobscot River was a complete downpour. I know they do this all the time in all weather, but I still had my doubts that it would be quite as much fun. No worries, it turns out. Our awesome guide Luke and the rest...

All I can say is WOW!!! What a great time my family had at Northern Outdoors. We spent a week exploring the beaches and mountains of Maine and wanted to go ATVing. We are avid snowmobilers but never ATV'd before in Maine and came across an advertisement for Northern Outdoors. We...

I have already recommended Northern Outdoors as a vacation destination for my Florida friends. It was fantastic to get out of the traffic and heat! The rafting, fishing and hiking were top notch. I was really impressed with the food at the lodge and the freshly brewed beer was fantastic! Lauren K Sarasota,...

Three years ago a group of work friends and I went to the Penobscot to go white water rafting. It was my first time ever going into white water and I was not sure what to expect. The second we hit exterminator I fell in love and have come back...

Didn't have the best weather but can't think of a prettier, more well equipped outpost to lay our gear and ATV up to Moosehead. Knowing that it was going to rain and it would be difficult to cook out, I looked for a campground that had easy access to a...

We had a great time rafting with Northern Outdoors however our trip didn't go exactly as planned. This was our second time rafting and we had heard that the Penobscot was the best in New England, so when it came time to book the river selection seemed obvious! Check in...

This was my first experience with white water rafting and Ted, our guide and his wife Julie, also a guide made the trip excellent. I was nervous to raft this river with class V rapids but they explained every rapid and gave excellent instruction so we knew exactly what to...
