I know, it's hard to believe we're already talking about August...but, here it is, and summer is going to be over before we know it! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE autumn in Maine and HIGHLY suggest a visit in the Fall (think: beautiful foliage & big water)...but, not everyone can get time off that time of year. So now's the time for many of you...visit our specials page, rally your crew, book your trip, and let's go rafting! 

Oh- and are you FROM MAINE? Don't forget that we offer 1/2 price rafting for Mainers on Wednesdays all season!

Three rivers, two bases, one vacation. Many families choose the Kennebec River rafting trip and a couple of nights at The Forks adventure resort, with our on-site restaurant & brewery, pool, and hot tub -- but more and more families are venturing to the Penobscot for a unique Maine adventure, with bigger rapids and bigger mountains....some even go for both! Where will you go?

Whether you visit the Katahdin Adventure Base Camp and crush through class Vs on the Penobscot, or hit up The Forks Adventure Resort and splash around in class IVs on the Kennebec or Dead River, there are TONS of other things to do to round out your vacation. Houston Brook Falls (pictured above) is just one of many short hikes located around our rafting locations, and the perfect place to cool down! Visit our hiking page for other top hiking spots, or check out an ATVing or guided fishing trip to complete your Maine vacation!

See you down river,

  • ITS 86 east towards Greenville – intown has plenty of snow and is in good shape. However, it does get beat up because of heavy traffic. Once out of town just 1 mile, things improve. Good shape all the way to the ITS 88 intersection. Power Line section at Moxie Pond is fine.
  • Kennebec River Trail – good snow all the way through from town to Northern Outdoors.
  • Bald Mountain Trail – we were unable to get this opened up this week. The big storm kept us busy on the ITS trails. It’s on the agenda for next week.
  • ITS 87 south towards Bingham –  in fine shape. Great cruising all the way with some great views of Sugarloaf Mtn and the Bigelow Range.
  • Pleasant Pond Trail – will not be opened this season, due to a winter long logging operation. Several miles of plowed roads.
