a plantation in Somerset County, formerly the township T1 R4 BKP, EKR, was organized November 2, 1840, with confirmation twice later in 1859 and 1895.
The Forks village is at the confluence of the Kennebec and Dead Rivers.
With the Kennebec on its west, and the full length of Moxie Pond on its east, the area does nor lack for fishing opportunities.
Appalachian Trail southbound hikers enter from Caratunk at the southeast corner of the plantation at the very southern tip of Moxie Pond, trekking over Middle Mountain, then north of Pleasant Pond over Pleasant Pond Mountain before reentering Caratunk.
In this unique case, the next town north or south is the same – Caratunk!
The two rivers are the scene of many rafting trips, supported by periodic upstream releases to make the water levels high enough and swift enough for the experience.
