Join the Androscoggin Land Trust to celebrate fall and the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend with a paddle along the shore of the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park. This paddle is approximately 8-miles round trip and lasts from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., depending on the weather and water conditions. (Paddle will be held rain or shine unless the conditions are treacherous.)

We'll take a short hike on the Homestead Trail, midway, to see foundations of old farmsteads, all that is left of a thriving community flooded out by the construction of Gulf Island Dam in 1927. Then we will paddle downriver to an island, have lunch, and turn back.

Please bring your own boat and paddling gear (life vests mandatory). Bring wind/rain/sun protection gear, binoculars, camera, water, and your lunch. You do not need to register in advance.

For directions and more information about the park, visit www.maine.gov/androscogginriverlands. The Center Bridge boat access is between the entrance to the park and the Greene-Turner Bridge. Look for a small blue sign with a boat on it.
