Explore the historically important canoe routes that Henry David Thoreau travelled during his treks to Maine with Wabanaki guides in 1857. The native Wabanaki, or “people of the dawn land,” have traveled these waters by canoe for thousands of years. Overland portages of their CANOES between rivers, lakes, and ponds made long-distance trips possible. On our expedition, we do as the ancient Wabanaki and Thoreau did, using canoes and our own strength to explore this place of legends. Note to participants: We’ve designed the Thoreau-Wabanaki Trail trip to be the perfect preparation for the George River Expedition.
