The region begins in Augusta
, home of the Maine State Museum and historic Ft. Western, and follows the mighty Kennebec River
and scenic Rt. 201 through Waterville (Redington Museum and Colby College), Skowhegan (Margaret Chase Smith Library and Lake George Park), The Forks (the hub for whitewater rafting), and Jackman, a major snowmobiling center. Whether you're a casual visitor or an experienced outdoorsman, you will savor the region's wooded hills and mountains, pristine lakes and rivers, as well as its cultural and historic attractions.
