Androscoggin Source to the Sea Trek

The Androscoggin Source to the Sea Trek is the ARWC's signature event.  Each year we attempt to paddle the majority of the Androscoggin's 170+ miles, welcoming paddlers to join us for one day or many as we celebrate the Androscoggin's revitalization over the past generation. The river is an incredible resource for paddling and fishing, home to abundant wildlife on every stretch, and an asset to the communities on its banks, and we believe the best way to understand the river is to experience it first-hand. 

"Thank you for another satisfying day on the Androscoggin! Mexico to Dixfield was my very first time on a river.  Center Bridge to Lewiston was my second.  Each time I pushed what I thought were my limits and came away filled with satisfaction...I want to thank all of you who helped me on the treks.  Your help and advice was crucial in enabling me to enjoy this wonderful experience...Your kind thoughtfulness is truly inspiring.  Next month I will celebrate my 74th birthday.  This gift of 2 days on the river counts as one of the best birthday presents ever.  Thank you all for making it happen."

 Mary Jane Beasley of Minot, ME had this to say about the Trek

Please join us in future years!
