It’s no secret that Maine has some of the best snowmobiling in the world, and the Katahdin Region is at the epicenter of the state’s expansive system of snowmobile trails. Maine’s Interconnected Trail System (ITS) includes 4,000 miles of uninterrupted trails and offers rides across Maine’s most scenic landscapes, complete with moose, Canada lynx, black bear, bald eagles, and other wildlife. In fact, Maine has the biggest moose and black bear populations in the Lower 48, according to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
If you’re looking for a perfect place to get out riding in some of Maine’s most amazing snowmobile terrain, the Katahdin Region of Maine has it all and has long been a focal point for Maine snowmobiling. With the conveniences of Twin Pine / New England Outdoor Center (NEOC), you can enjoy the best of snowmobiling in Maine, without any of the hassle. Twin Pines was designed with the snowmobiler in mind and offers a range of snowmobile rentals, an amazing restaurant where you can enjoy a hot meal before heading out on the trail, comfortable lodging with wood stoves and full kitchens, and of course an easy place to fill your gas tank and get the latest trail conditions. Conveniently located trailside to ITS86 on Millinocket Lake, NEOC is the place to begin your snowmobiling adventure.
Explore the Great White North
Starting from NEOC, you can ride west toward Moosehead Lake, then on to Jackman-Moose River, continue to Rangeley,and go all the way to the New Hampshire border. Or you can head north right past Katahdin and Baxter State Park and into unlimited rides across Aroostook County. There are several sporting camps along the trail where you can fill up your tank and stop for lunch. Maine’s ITS gives you the ability to travel from region to region with a full range of services (and well-groomed trails) available along the way. Many of Maine’s additional 10,000 miles of groomed trails also hook up with the ITS.There is no finer place on earth to snowmobile.
