Snowmobiling

Heralded as one of the Top 10 best places to snowmobile in North America, Aroostook County is comprised of over 2,300 miles of world class interconnected snowmobile trails.

Since natural snowfall is one of the county’s most plentiful resources, the northern Maine snowmobiling season usually starts in December and often runs well in to April. Each winter our snowmobile trails are groomed by state-of-the-art machinery through a network of snowmobile clubs working together to create our portion of the Interconnected Trail System (ITS).

Our snowmobile trails are safe, well marked, and snowmobile trail maps are available at most Chambers of Commerce and many local area lodging establishments and stores. Take a ride on the ITS through northern Maine, or join us for the International Snowmobiler’s Festival. This annual festival brings together U.S. and Canadian snowmobilers together for a weekend of cross border snowmobiling in northern Maine and western New Brunswick.

Many restaurants, stores, and other establishments are located on the snowmobile trail system in northern Maine. Access to lunch, dinner, gas, and other necessities does not require a car ride or a walk – sled right up to the front door and be greeted with a warm northern Maine welcome. For more information about snowmobiling around the area, please visit Fort Kent SnoRiders.
