Northern Forest Canoe Trail

Completed in 2006, the Northern Forest Canoe Trail is a 700-mile water trail from Old Forge, New York to Fort Kent, Maine, that goes through private and public lands. The trail follows traditional travel routes used by Native American, settlers and guides. It is the longest inland water trail in the nation.

There are seven trips through the NEK. Paddle any one of them along with visiting three of the other Naturally NEKed sites lands you a t-shirt and sticker pack. Paddle all seven?? Well, we’ll get you a shower.
