Lots of people out enjoying the trails and scenery this past weekend.

We saw lots of riders out this weekend enjoying the snowmobile trails. Overall feedback has been very positive considering it's still early season, and we haven't had any new snow since the storm in late December. It's been cold so we have maintained our base, but we could use more...

Hi Everyone, Greetings from The Forks! Sunday's Nor'easter tore up the state and dumped 18 to 24 inches everywhere! While I love guiding Northern Outdoors' Kennebec River Whitewater Rafting trips in the summer, I look forward to snowmobile season in The Forks with equal enthusiasm. I got my sled out of...

We received 5 inches of new snow today and The Forks Area is blanketed in the white stuff. With temperatures forecast to remain cold the next few days and with the potential for a significant storm before Christmas, we remain on track to start grooming sometime next week to open for the 2008/...

Working as a whitewater raft guide on Maine's Kennebec, Penobscot and Dead rivers, I take great pride in guiding adventures from around the world down the best whitewater the northeast has to offer. Over the course of a day the questions can range from routine to bizarre. A question I hear as often...
