    The last tracks I have are now over four years old. I'd expect certain others to kick in, as the route has been ridden successfully a few times a year. I took a big hurty off in Newfoundland and my riding has been limited while the sixteen pieces of my shoulder continue to heal. Be aware that some parts of this route are technically illegal, so ride at your own risk. As always and once again, thanks to the New Brunswick Dual Sport Club and Dockingpilot for pushing through the original track and making it available. This is not my route -- It includes the efforts of many others, who deserve more credit than I.

    How exactly do these maps work? I recently got home from 8k mile western fly and ride and started and eastern adventure to the new england area (which ive had to delay due to bike issues). Anyways ive ended up spending like 90% of my time on highways, which is not what i really wanted.
    Im just new to adventuring and going it on my own, so part of it is not knowing how to work out where the decent trails are and part of it is worrying about being on my own if anything were to go wrong way out in the back country.
    All i have for a gps right now is my phone with cached maps of certain areas. Will these types of maps work on that? Or would i need paper maps or a gps?

    Hmm, based on how you asked that question, I'm not sure of your level of experience so I apologize if this is either too simple or too complex, but...all you need to do is download the gpx file (which will contain a track and possibly some waypoints), load it into whatever software you prefer to use on you phone (I use Locus Pro), call up map, display the track and you're pretty much good to go.

    Maybe it was the part about caching maps that made my expertise level look higher? Let me clarify, i have no experience with trailsmapping programs, all i have cached before are generic state gps maps on maps.me so i dont have to use data when navigating. How do you like the locus app? Do i need to paid version to do this, or will free one work?

    Ive got the trail in the locus app, but still not sure how to start navigation and stuff.

    Hello folks,

    I'd love to start planning on doing some of this run next summer.. I'd like to do a loop from NB, over to Maine, NH, Vermont, and then cross back into Quebec, back into NB.

    I did the northwestern part of NB a couple of years ago, some pavement was included, but the dirt stuff was pretty good going.

    I was interested in visiting the point where NB, Quebec and USA join up borderwise.

    I'll keep following this thread and try to contribute what I can.

    It's also nice to see Dockingpilot is still alive and well. :lol3

    did anyone ride the NNEAT this year, wondering how out of date or accurate the old gpx track is?

    Yes, I rode most of it this summer, and it was great. It was part of a longer ride, reported here:
    http://advrider.com/index.php?threa...gland-adventure-and-puppy-dog-trails.1156887/

    On the previous page of this track, I reported two impassable spots, http://advrider.com/index.php?threa...-adventure-trail.769424/page-15#post-29868157

    However I now suspect that the longer one, between Beaudry Road and Route 201 at Parlin Pond, may be based on false information I got from an Innkeeper at Parlin Pond Lodge, because he's also the one who told me it's illegal to ride on private property in Maine, even if it isn't posted (which I now understand to be incorrect). If anyone has ridden that section since the spring of 2016, please post it here, so riders can ignore that comment (or believe it, if that section is impassable).

    Beaudry was closed in July after storms dumped a foot of rain in a few hours, it is open now.

    There is a much better route that extends north of Beaudry up to Skinner, Holeb, and then to 201 north of Jackman. You can then, with a little skill run the ATV trails and dirt roads to Greenville or Guilford.

    If anyone wants a grand tour, those areas are my playground.

    So is the GPX file posted in the first post the most up to date? Looking at doing NNEAT this year on big bikes and would like up to date tracks.

    I second that ask. I'd really like to get the latest GPX files for the route as well. There are three of us in MA that are putting plans together now. Thanks in advance.

    Pretty much. But its the northeast so be ready to improvise slightly if needed

    Hi Folks, I will be riding the Parlin Pond, Beaudry area in a week or so. I may elect to ride to north loop through Jackman though as Haymaker is suggesting. Capture.JPG

    Just did about 1/2 this trail over a couple days. It's as fun, remote and beautiful as it was a couple years ago! Avoid the TET that is mostly paved in my experience. This is the one to do through this area.

    Outside Dover Foxcroft , me and @sprouty115 came upon a few blocks in the road. The Dave Navarro look alike, that lives there with his teenage significant other and their infant, said the town came and dropped them a few years ago. We just went around through the town. Peaks Kenny State Park is quite a nice campground. Tell Sydney Steve said hi:clap:clap

    I'll post the coordinates tonight when I get back to my GPS.
