The Forks Vacation Packages
Enjoy fresh air, nature and exhilarating thrills in the Forks, a remote region located where the magnificent Kennebec and Dead Rivers meet. Get out on the river on sunny summer days and drive a snowmobile around snowy trails in winter.
Go tubing and canoeing on the Kennebec River. Join a whitewater rafting trip to experience its relentless rapids. Among the more popular rafting routes in the region is the 12-mile (19-kilometer) trip from Indian Pond through the Upper Kennebec Gorge, which features rapids up to Class IV.
Strap on your life vest and brave the challenging rapids of the Dead River, which stretches for over 40 miles (64 kilometers) between Flagstaff Lake and the Kennebec River at the Forks. The river is one of the longest stretches of continuous whitewater on the East Coast.
Take a hike along one of the many trails weaving through the Forks. Go for a relaxed stroll to Moxie Falls, where the Kennebec River cascades down 90 feet (27 meters), making it one of Maine’s highest waterfalls. Trek along a portion of the famous Appalachian Trail and climb to the top of Pleasant Pond Mountain.
The fun doesn’t stop in winter. Glide your way to the summit of Coburn Mountain to try out one of Maine’s highest snowmobile trails. Go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.
The charm of the Forks lies in its remoteness and ruggedness. Don’t expect a vibrant downtown. In fact, Forks is not a town at all but rather a plantation, a designation applied to sparsely populated areas in Maine. The population here rarely goes above 50.
Choose from a number of places stay at and enjoy in the Forks. From full-service resorts to rustic camps, experience the Maine wilderness the way you want to. Enlist the services of wilderness guides to take you on fishing, snowmobiling and hunting excursions.
