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.
Two top-notch canoe manufacturers have donated boats for us to raffle off this year to help support our programs. Northstar Canoes, based in Princeton, Minnesota, has provided us with a 16′ Northwind and Placid Boatworks, located in Lake Placid, New York, has donated a 15′ RapidFire.
The Northern Forest Canoe Trail is a member-supported, non-profit organization. Member dues allow us to carry out our mission so you have inspiring outdoor experiences in the Northern Forest Region.
Buy maps individually, for a region, or get the entire 13-map set. All maps include campsites, portages, rapids, useful phone numbers, and of course are waterproof.
Let us be your guide for your trip on the NFCT for a day, weekend or longer. Our books share the details you need to have a successful journey, as well as the history and images of this magnificent waterway.

The paddles are handmade in Maine by Shaw & Tenney, crafters of wooden marine products since 1858, and the NFCT paddle is their popular Penobscot model. It’s both responsive on the water and tasteful art to decorate your home. We are fortunate to be a part of Shaw & Tenney’s Signature Paddles collection and receive a donation from them whenever our paddle is ordered.
In 2012, the Northern Forest Canoe Trail developed aquatic invasive spread prevention signage specifically targeting paddlers. Thanks to the Lake Champlain Basin Program for funding and input from paddlers and local, state, and federal groups who collaborated to make our message clear and effective.
