Kennebec & Moose River Valleys
The vast landscape of the Kennebec and Moose River Valleys stretches from the coast to Canada and encompasses a wealth of natural beauty, from lakes and ponds to forests and mountains to rivers and streams. The opportunity for outdoor activities abounds here, from whitewater rafting on the Kennebec and Dead Rivers and hiking on the Appalachian Trail to sport fishing for salmon and trout and canoeing along the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. A number of community parks and a state reserve offer scenic spots to sunbathe, swim and picnic with friends and family. Take a leisurely drive on the Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway and map the history of the region, including part of Benedict Arnold’s route, on your way to the border with Canada. Travel back in time at Old Fort Western on the banks of the Kennebec River and get a glimpse of Maine’s history at the Maine State Museum in the capital city of Augusta. Settle in to the comfort of a lakefront cabin, cozy B&B, inn or guesthouse or pitch your family tent at a campground and enjoy an evening around the campfire. Visit the Kennebec and Moose River Valleys and experience for yourself the perfect Maine vacation adventure.
