Welcome to Kennebec

Extending from the state capital of Augusta to the borders of Canada, the Kennebec & Moose River Valleys have some of Maine’s best waterlogged adventures! Hold your breath while whitewater rafting down Kennebec and Dead Rivers near the microscopic community of The Forks, often considered to be Maine’s rafting mecca. For more tranquil waters, travel down the Kennebec to Augusta, and relax on the banks of its restored downtown River District. Just off the banks lies the Viles Arboretum, a free-of-charge collection of native plants and trees. Don’t forget your paddle while canoeing on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, and maybe catch a salmon on the way! You’re most likely to get a little wet no matter where you end up in the Kennebec & Moose River Valleys!
