Maine's Kennebec Valley

Taking its name from the Kennebec River, the region stretches from the river's birthplace at Moosehead Lake down beyond the capital at Augusta. Lovers of the outdoors will find prime paddling and fly-fishing spots. Hikers will be amazed at the variety of ways to go. And adventurists will be thrilled with Class IV rapids on the Kennebec and the Dead rivers. Visitors to Waterville, Skowhegan or Augusta will find offbeat excursions and many of the region’s unmatched culinary offerings.
