Welcome to the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. The NFCT is a living reminder of when rivers were both highways and routes of communications. The Trail is 740 miles of historic waterway traveled by Native Americans. Its west to east direction begins in Old Forge, New York, and travels through Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire and ends in Fort Kent Maine. The non-profit that established the Trail divides the trail into 13 sections and offers detailed maps for each of these sections.
