The Androscoggin flows for nearly 170 miles, beginning at Lake Umbagog on the Maine/New Hampshire border, continuing south through northern New Hampshire, heading east through western Maine, then turning south again before joining with the Kennebec in Merrymeeting Bay and emptying into the Atlantic. It has a rich geological and human history. Having once been rated as one of the most polluted rivers in the country, it served as the inspiration for the Clean Water Act and now boasts great fishing, wildlife habitat, and recreation opportunities. The Androscoggin River Watershed Council encourages collaboration among industry, conservation groups, landowners, and other interests to ensure that the Androscoggin continues to be a healthy asset to the communities on its banks and the wildlife it supports.

We had a great time on the 2014 Androscoggin River Trail Source to Sea. We enjoyed great weather throughout the entire season of paddling. Many thanks to our sponsors, speakers, trip leaders and those of you who came along and paddled with us down the Androscoggin. We are already planning next year's 20th celebration of the Source to the Sea. We hope to add some additional paddles and who knows, perhaps some special events to celebrate 20 years paddling the River. Click on the link on the left for more information
