The Upper Ammo needs a lot water for a fluid run. Therefore you would be hard pressed to
find this river running unless everything else in the neighborhood is at or near flood
stage. The river itself is an easy class I-II at the begining and eventually builds up to a
steady class II with a few small ledge drops. Gorge-us is the most difficult section in
this run. It is recognized by a sharp right bend up against a shear granite wall on river
left approximately 4.8 miles below the put-in. Gorge-us should be considered a class II+ or
III depending on level. It is easily portaged on river right.
Be aware that most of this run is wild and a difficult bush wack back to civilization, it makes
for a great northern New England wilderness experience but a nightmare if problems arise.
