Winter Activities

Snowmobiling through the forest.

Snowmobiling through the forest.


Maine's abundant snowfall makes snowmobiling hugely popular here, as evidenced by our over 280+ snowmobile clubs. Maine's snowmobile trail system—which includes more than 3,500 miles of primary trail known as the Interconnected Trail System (ITS)—offers the ability to ride uninterrupted from region to region, with a full range of services available en route. Many of the state’s 10,000 additional miles of groomed trails also hook up with the ITS.

Numerous outfitters, camps and resorts will provide you with complete rentals, from helmets and sleds to parts and fuel. You can also take advantage of guided sled tours, ranging from half and full-day outings for families and groups to extended trips of a few days or more. Prime snowmobiling areas include Jackman-Moose River, Millinocket, Moosehead Lake, Rangeley Lakes and Aroostook County. Fill up your tank, stop for lunch, or enjoy a club event run by volunteers who maintain the trail system.

Some of our more unique snowmobiling routes include Ride the Wind, which links wind farms across the eastern part of the state, and northern Piscataquis County, where riders can explore the abandoned railroad and steam locomotives of the Eagle Lake and West Branch Railroad. If you’re near The Forks, head up Maine's highest elevation snowmobile trail to the top of Coburn Mountain, where the views of the North Woods are boundless, or visit Elephant Mountain, where you can view the remains of a B-52 bomber that crashed during a training flights in 1963.
