Northern Forest Canoe Trail Thru-paddler to speak in Norway, Maine

The first female thru-paddler of the 740-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail will talk about her adventures on the trail at the Norway Memorial Library on Thursday, October 6, at 6:30 pm, as part of an ongoing program “Wild Lands: What They Mean to Us & What We Mean to Them.”

Nicole Grohoski of Ellsworth will share a short, home-grown film about her 2006 trip as well as photos and stories celebrating 10 years along the trail since that epic paddle.

Audience members will learn all about this amazing paddling resource, 347 miles of which cross some of the most spectacular waters of Maine. The Northern Forest Canoe Trail is the longest paddling trail in the nation and runs from Old Forge, New York through Vermont, Québec, and New Hampshire to Fort Kent, Maine following ancient Native American travel routes. In 2014 the Northern Forest Canoe Trail was named “Editor’s Choice–Best Canoeing” by Yankee Magazine.
