The Kennebec and Moose River travel ways, embraced by lakes and forest, are rich in history, culture and natural beauty. These travel ways lead to spectacular waterfalls, scenic hikes along the Appalachian Trail and East Coast Greenway, tours of historic districts, forts and museums, 4 seasons of festivals and fairs and the adventure of whitewater rafting, snowmobiling and sport fishing.
