River Description

The takeout is just below the Route 8 bridge just north of Wells. Drive upstream on Route 8 and scout from the road as needed. Take out at the first parking spot downstream of Teachout Road.  Or to combine with the upstream section put in on or above Teachout Road.


Solid Class 3 that is non-stop all the way from end to end. Lots of fun! A great run that is perhaps the best Class 3 training ground in the state. Run laps until you are ready for a bigger run.
