Paddling Film Festival

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail hosts screenings of Rapid Media’s Paddling Film Fest World Tour every spring. We are excited to be able to share the year’s best paddling films with you. Check out the 2018 schedule for tickets and locations.

Missisquoi River Paddle-Pedal Race

Join us each year for the Missisquoi Paddle-Pedal (race or ramble) in late June. The event combines 6.5 miles of paddling down the Missisquoi River and 4.5 miles of cycling on the adjacent Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail. Food, music and an awards ceremony finish the day at Davis Park in Richford, Vermont.

Online Auction

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail’s online auction takes place in November every year. Find great deals on outdoor gear, regional adventures, books and services. Your participation supports our mission.

Waterway Work Trips

Get your hands dirty, support the trail and meet people with similar interests. Join us for a weekend working with staff and interns improving portage trails and campsites, building access points or installing safety signage. And we always make time for paddling. Annual schedule released in March.
