Winter moved into spring and now we are quickly moving into summer! We have already had four canoe trips in May and this summer promises to be as busy as last! Click here to see our full summer canoeing schedule.

This is an older video of Polly being interviewed by a student for SALT magazine. I enjoy viewing it but it does make me miss my old lead dog, Jarvis.

Kevin has just guided a St John (Wolastoq) and Allagash canoe trips plus a couple day long workshops for canoe poling and white water refresher during this month of May.

Polly guided a day canoe trip to Umbagog Lake but has mostly been working on the dog farm doing some much needed upkeep. We are also working on a new website so stay tuned for the “new Mahoosuc” look! We have been told if we had more google reviews this would help our search engine optimization. So if you have done a trip with us and would like to write a review we would really appreciate it. Here is the link to your personal review and we thank you!

In the last month we have been busy with some other activities here on the farm; hosting a Wilderness First Aid course (next one in October), taught some of the new Kroka staff for a few days about campfire cooking, how to conduct a safe trip in the wilderness, among other topics, continued to help Jarrod build his new wood canvas canoe with Kevin in his workshop. It is looking very nice!

We are sorry to see our apprentice since October, Auden, leave for his next adventure and to follow his interests in wildlife. We are looking for someone to work with us this summer who would like to learn on our canoe trips and also help care for the sled dogs.


There are a few trips with still room on them:

Allagash River – August 2-7, September 27-October

West Branch of the Penobscot River – July 27-31, August 13-17

Way of the Wabanaki – August 25-28, September 15-18


Here is a video to “wet your whistle” for a canoe trip with Mahoosuc!

Hope to see some of you this summer!

Polly, Kevin & all the doggies
