Northern Forest Canoe Trail topic of Grohoski talk



BAR HARBOR — Nicole Grohoski of Ellsworth will talk about her experience as the first woman to through-paddle the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, a 740-mile waterway which links New York, Vermont, Québec, New Hampshire and Maine, when she visits the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.

She will share a short film about her trip. She also will show photos and tell stories celebrating the 10 years she has spent along the trail since that paddle in 2006.

The Northern Forest Canoe Trail, the longest paddling trail in the nation, follows Native American travel routes from Old Forge, N.Y. to Fort Kent. Audience members will learn about this paddling resource, which is made up of contiguous rivers, streams and lakes, 347 miles of which cross some of the most spectacular waters of Maine. In 2014, the trail was named “Editor’s Choice-Best Canoeing” by “Yankee Magazine.”

This talk is part of the Cadillac Mountain Sports Speaker Series. The final talk in the series will be on Thursday, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m. Members of the Acadia Centennial Task Force will talk about the centennial year and Acadia National Park’s next 100 years.
