Ten Maine summer experiences
The Northern Forest Canoe Trail flows through New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Quebec, but more than 350 of its 740 miles are in Maine. It enters the state at Lake Umbagog and winds northwestward following lakes, rivers, and streams to Fort Kent. The trail is mapped in 13 sections, with the Maine portion beginning in section 8. Maps detail the waterways, portages, dams, communities, and natural sights along the route. Purchase a guidebook ($24.95) and maps (Maine set is $59.70) and find trip-planning information on the organizations website. 802-496-2285.
