Weekly Report, Week of October 7th, 2019:

Just as we had hoped, Last Blast weekend on the Dead River was incredible. We had beautiful foliage lining the river, along with bright sunny skies and a crisp, beautiful fall day. It really couldn’t have been any better! The leaves here in The Forks continue to brighten– you can even see the difference from October 5th (last picture) to October 8th, with peak color really coming our way now and sticking around through the long weekend! We are excited to get on the Kennebec River this weekend, and can’t wait to see pictures from other adventures on the ATV and hiking trails.

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

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!
