Winter is the time to get outside in Maine's Kennebec Valley. Our pristine and primal forests are ideal for nature lovers or speedsters alike. From the vast system of trails that connect the cities and towns in the region's upper reaches to the well worn trail from your cottage to the sauna or hot tub, there is no end to the delights of winter.
Here you can delight in the thrill of nordic skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and even an afternoon of sledding and snow-tubing. Maybe you’d like to go for a sled ride behind a frisky pack of yipping and barking dogs, mushing along the trail.
Drop a line in an ice-fishing derby (or fish on a statewide free fishing day) and pass on the joy of hauling in a big one from under the ice. Or just put on some skates or grab your sled and take a few runs at the hill across the street from your inn. Winter is a kids time of year, as long as you act like a kid.
