Maine's Kennebec Valley

This strikingly beautiful part of the state follows the Kennebec River from its birthplace at Moosehead Lake down to the capital at Augusta. The river flows through prime paddling and fly-fishing spots deep in the wooded mountains. This is also home to Maine whitewater rafting. Explore at a slower speed along the Old Canada Road Scenic Byway. Visitors to Waterville and Skowhegan should seek offbeat excursions and the region’s unexpected cultural offerings.
