Travel Directions to Magic Falls

Maine White Water Rafting Location in West Forks

DO NOT USE YOUR MOBILE GPS TO LOCATE MAGIC FALLS!!!

Too many guests have programmed 38 Dead River Road, West Forks, Maine into their systems and have ended their journey in the middle of no-where on the back side of Bigelow Mountain.  Don't become a statistic or brunt of a classic GPS joke.  Follow the driving instructions on your confirmation or call for directions.

"What an amazing time! This was our first time! It was high water and the rapids tremendous- needless to say we were nervous. Chris was the best guide. He made us feel safe and comfortable, was friendly, knowledgeable and super helpful! The BBQ was perfect and all the staff friendly, patient and helpful. We stayed at the Inn - conveniently located right next to starting point, comfortable and a great view.

I have been rafting twice with Magic Falls. The owner Dave has been our guide both trips! He's left a great impression on my friends and me. This company is exceptional. They make you feel right at home and the guides have great senses of humor. The staff are well trained and the meal you get at the end of the trip is great! We are 100% loyal to Magic Dave's White Water Rafting Company!
