  • Snowmobiling to Grand Falls on the Dead River - One of Maine's best snowmobiling destinations, Grand Falls spans nearly 100 feet across the Dead River with an imposing 40ft drop. In the heart of winter the waterfall transforms itself into a staircase of crystalline ice flows that is sure to inspire awe in even the most traveled riders. On the snowmobile trail there from Northern’s base lodge, scenic vistas include the Kennebec River, the Dead River, and the uniquely gorgeous Granny-Cap Mountain.
  • Coburn Mountain, Maine Snowmobiling Coburn Mountain: The Peak of Maine Snowmobiling - At 3,717 feet, Coburn Mountain is the highest groomed snowmobile trail in Maine. It has become a northeast snowmobiling bucket list item. It's our local sled peak. We love the ride to Coburn Mountain and the trail up the mountain.
