Northern Forest Canoe Trail Through-Paddler's Companion


A companion guidebook for paddlers who intend to canoe or kayak the 740-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail in a single trip from Old Forge, New York to Fort Kent, Maine.

It provides comprehensive and tactical advice about specific water bodies, including upstream paddling directions, portage (or carry) descriptions and distances, and mileage markers, while offering suggestions for ordinary, yet sometimes elusive matters, such as where one might spend the night.
