LAST BLAST on the Dead River is October 5th

I'm not trying to wish summer away...but, it's happening whether we like it or not! Lucky for me, fall is my favorite season here in Maine, and my absolute favorite time to raft. Crisp mornings, sunny river days, beautiful foliage, and fewer crowds all come together to make for amazing fall rafting. My personal favorite trip of the year is Last Blast on the Dead River -- 6,000+ cfs makes for BIG waves, and our region (zone 5) is usually in peak foliage! 

But, it's not all about the river days -- people love to hit up Maine in the fall because of how forested our state is, making the scenery simply spectacular! ATVing and fly fishing are other popular fall activities, and are awesome ways to see the changing foliage from a different point of view. Need more ideas? Check out our list of Top 5 Things to Do in Maine in the Fall.

ATVing in the fall is where it's at! Fewer crowds on the trails, mid-week cabin rental rates, and beautiful foliage lining the trails means fall is a favorite for many! Trailer your ATV up, or grab a rental from Maine Outdoor Sports -- either way, you'll be flying by the orange, red, and yellow on the trails! Don't forget- 15% off lodging for heroes.
 

 

ATV Trails & Rentals

If you've met our team of river guides, you know we're a pretty light-hearted bunch. We love our jobs, love this area, and love to share it with others. We also love to have fun. Check out Trevor, Ryan, Erica, and Zach as they take Groomer Karaoke to the river...it's Trip Truck Karaoke! Also worth noting? There's nearly 40 years of combined guiding experience here!

If you're not quite ready to accept the changing season, then be sure to take advantage of the last few weeks of summer... kids raft 1/2 price Monday-Friday until August 30th, and Labor Day weekend is a BLAST here in The Forks with our 80s night party and Dead River release. Want to get away from the crowds? The Penobscot River is the place to be, with trips daily until September 8th! 

See you down river,
Emily Yearwood

  • 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.
