Rumford & River Valley
The Rumford & River Valley area is home to the Black Mountain Ski Area, where you can go downhill skiing or snowboarding day or night. This ski area also has cross-country trails developed by Rumford’s two-time Olympian Chummy Broomhall, and it has hosted many national cross-country ski championships. In the warmer months, you can go fishing for bass along the Androscoggin River, which flows through the valley. You can also visit Rumford Falls or hike along the River Walking Trail and see statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox.
