The South Branch of The West Canada:
This is an exciting stretch of river. It follows route 8 south from Fayle Road to the Bridge at Nobleboro. The scenic lookout at Nobleboro (Haskell Road) is a great place to meet up with fellow paddlers.
15 - 20 minutes of flatwater paddling warms you up after the put-in. About a mile or more of Class II, a short break and then 2+ miles of II-III. This is a fast run, less than 2 hours to cover over 5 miles of water. It is rocky at low levels and really pushy at higher levels.
For a full day of paddling combine this with West Canada, North Branch: Big Brook to Route 8
