03 Jul 10 The Fork’s Best: Maine Whitewater Rafting, Handcraft Beer & Endless Adventure
The Forks, Maine is a rural paradise. Located on Route 201 in North Western, Maine, The Forks and West Forks have a year round population of under 100 people, but oh what a place we live in! We have stunning scenery, great kayaking and canoeing, awesome fishing, moose and eagles and great trails. We also have wild Maine whitewater rafting and super-tastey micobrew beer at the Kennebec River Brewery, and lodging from luxury cabins to tent camping for visitors. We’re so country-cool we can hardly stand it.
Spring and summer means hours of play on the rivers and lakes either fishing or rafting or kayaking and canoeing. It means day hikes on the Appalachian Trail or extended overnight treks on Maine hut to hut hiking trips. It means eating well at local restaurants and sipping some KRB BlueBerry Ale after a long day working or playing.
Come fall, the leaves are nothing short of stunning, and long scenic drives are only one way to see them. Kennebec River rafting or Dead River rafting allow for viewing vistas that most folks never glimpse. An autumn hike to Moxie falls is something not soon forgotten!
Winter brings its own wonder, with frozen lakes and rivers, moose and rabbit tracks in the snow, and great trails for snowmobiling, whether day trips or over night multi-day excusions.
There’s no season here that doesn’t delight. The Forks may be small, but being here is a mighty big time!
