River Description

A wonderful series of waterfalls in state park. This is territory for the 'vertically addicted'. Carry up, scouting as you go, then run what you feel confident enough to do.

Highly recommended to visit, hike, and photograph, even if you don't intend to run.

No Gage

Gage Descriptions

Visual. Normally run when rest of river is too low.

Directions Description

Ignore the 'shuttle' directions below. Shuttle is on foot, carrying up on paths in the park, scouting and memorizing lines as you go.


Use the text-box below to enter your home (or other starting) address to get drive time/distance and directions to this area. (Again, ignore the final turn off the main drag -- you will be going just a tad further to the state park.)

Penobscot River Dams to be Removed!

Kevin Colburn

Atlantic Salmon and other imperiled fish species will soon have hundreds of additional miles of habitat. A recent decision between a power company, NGO's, tribes, and government agencies calls for the removal of two dams on Maine's Penobscot River and the bypassing of a third. American Whitewater applauds this huge win for rivers and is recruiting volunteers to assist with our work on the project. There is a public meeting December 2nd.
