Trail App

In partnership with FarOut Guides (formerly Gut Hook Guides), NFCT now has a Trail App! This GPS-enabled guide includes over 1,400 waypoints, site photos and several base maps, which can also be downloaded for offline use. See user comments about site conditions, locate yourself on a portage and quickly determine distances to the next site of interest. This is the most up-to-date resource for trip planning. Purchase a guide for the whole trail or for individual sections. To purchase, download the FarOut Guides app on your smartphone and search for the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, or go to their online store. Note: NFCT members receive 20% off the purchase price! To claim your coupon code, e-mail Marthe before placing your order.

Signature Paddle

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.

Paddling Film Festival Tickets

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.


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.
