Thanks to everyone for a spectacular white water rafting season! Year 41 on the books (learn about our history pioneering whitewater rafting in Maine.)

Time to enjoy New England’s fall foliage show from the ATV trails and hiking trails… and get that winter snowmobiling trip planned. The Forks sits in the center of Maine’s expansive trail networks, with beautiful spots like Moxie Falls nearby, and Moosehead Lake a short ride away. Our brewpub, open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, is the perfect complement to a day on the trails.

Ah, beer. Nothing quite captures an adventure vacation like a delicious beer. Even better when it’s a handcrafted Maine microbrew. And what about sipping one right after a day on the river or trails? Our brewery is so good, it’s even part of the Maine Beer Trail. Appetizers available and live music on the weekends.
