Get it While it’s Hot: Northern Forest Canoe Trail Auction is Up


- Advertisment -

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail’s 14th annual Online Auction kicked off November 1, offering paddling enthusiasts a variety of outdoor-related items and experiences to bid on.

The auction is a fundraiser for the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, a nonprofit organization that manages the 740-mile water trail from Old Forge, New York, to Fort Kent, Maine. The nonprofit provides stewardship along the trail and promotes paddling in the Northern Forest region

“The auction is a great way for paddlers to purchase their favorite gear while supporting access to the waterways of the Northern Forest,” said NFCT Executive Director Karrie Thomas.

A 14-foot New Tricks canoe made by Hornbeck Boats headlines the auction. This solo canoe is designed for the paddler looking for a boat that is light enough to portage to a backcountry pond but large enough to carry enough gear for a camping trip.

“Hornbeck’s New Tricks 14 is just one example of the high-quality equipment the auction is offering,” Thomas said. “Local and national businesses have been extremely generous this year.”

The auction takes place from November 1 to December 2. To participate, go to
