Aroostook County in Maine’s far north offers some of the best snowmobiling in the United States. There are 2,000 miles of groomed and mapped trails in an area larger than the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined, spanning 7,000 square miles of woods, waters, and farmland.

Thanks to an average annual snowfall of 94 inches, it’s paradise for those who love to sled. Highlights include the Aroostook Valley Trail, which connects the towns of Presque Isle, Caribou, Washburn, Woodland, and New Sweden.

The Border Trail goes through woods and farmland that skirts the Canadian border. The 50-mile trail known as ITS 88 follows the banks of the Aroostook River, with glimpses of Maine’s tallest mountain, Katahdin, in the distance.
