Waterlovers! Meet the St. George River Canoe Trail
March 24, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The St. George River boasts some amazing boating opportunities including fast rips, large, wide lakes, tranquil pools under nearly closed tree canopies, and six portages. The river is the lifeblood of the watershed that winds its way from its headwaters in Lake St. George and Frye Mountain in Waldo County to its mouth where it flows into Muscongus Bay in Knox County. The 51-mile river falls from coastal mountains through rich farmlands, ten towns, and flows through seven lakes.
Join us at Maine Sport Outfitters, our partners for the weekend, at 115 Commercial St (Rte 1), Rockport, for a dry tour of the new river canoe trail led by Meg Rasmussen our Executive Director on Sunday, March 24 at 1 pm. She’ll give you a photographic overview of the area featured in our new river trail map covering 36 miles for those interested in canoeing and kayaking this beautiful river. We’ll have copies on hand of the printable brochure that shows the river in four sections and highlights access points, rapids, portages and historical points of interest. It’s never too early to start planning your boating season on the St. George River!
As a BONUS – Maine Sport Outfitters will donate a percentage of their sales on March 22-24 to Georges River Land Trust! So if you are looking for a new kayak or any other significant purchase, please shop on these dates to create a gift to local conservation and trails!
