Old Town, 2nd Dam to Veazie Dam

Usual Difficulty I-III (for normal flows)
Length 6 Miles

River Description

Putin and takeout coordinates may have errors, as the dams are not obvious on the topo map.

Brandon Cain contributes:

While this area is not very appealing to the river runner, it is an excellant play spot. On river right below the putin is Typewriter. On river left on the other other side of the island are some killer surf waves. The river-left side of the waves are easy and they get harder towards the right.

This could use an update. Great works and Veazie dams have been removed, making the Penobscot
continuous to the Ocean from Milford dam. There is also a new, further upstream put in at a park in
Old Town. There are 5 rapids on this section, 2 of them being one either side of French Island so
you only get one of them. I have a detailed google map with rapids/photo and put in / take outs
