Weekly Report, Week of October 14th, 2019:

As you can tell from the progression photo, the true peak foliage for our region of Maine began last week and lasted through the weekend. It made for an amazing LAST BLAST trip on the Dead River, and perfect peak foliage for our final big Kennebec River trip of the season! The ATV and hiking trails were busy, and lots of folks stopped in for lunch and a beer on their travels through The Forks! If you want to find PEAK foliage right now, there’s still time on the coast — so take a road trip to hike the Bees Hive in Acadia National Park! Once you’re done, travel just under 3 hours west to our region of Maine for just past peak conditions. It may be past peak where we’re at, but we’re still seeing beautiful colors, and the weather is great for outdoor adventuring. Our lodge, restaurant and on-site brewery, accommodations & cabins, and local ATV and hiking trails are still open — so there’s still time to get outside and enjoy some fall beauty!

Want to see more? The Maine Foliage Report, published weekly, gives you the full run down of the color change across the entire state.

Need some ideas on how to see the colors? We’ve got a few in mind!

Relax in a cabin in the woods, steps away from a craft brewery and restaurant..oh, and an outdoor hot tub!
Whitewater rafting on the Kennebec River!
ROAD TRIP! Check out the Maine Beer Trail and go for a brew tour, or just stop by our resort for lunch on your way to Quebec City.
Fly fishing through the Kennebec River gorge is the MOST unique fishing trip offered in our area!
Take a hike! Into Moxie Falls, up Mosquito Mountain, or along the river on the FAST trail!
Rent an ATV and cruise to Moosehead Lake!
