Run of River

SkowheganRunOfRiver_CMYK-01Run of River is a proposed whitewater recreation area in and around the Kennebec River Gorge that will enhance quality of life for residents and position Skowhegan as a tourist destination. Features will include a whitewater park with enhanced rapids and waves for kayakers, canoeists, and other water enthusiasts; terraced seating; an expanded and developed non-motorized, four-season trail system; a riverfront promenade; pristine fishing waters with improved fish habitat; and a boathouse/events venue.
