We begin our week long Allagash trips at Chamberlain Bridge or Indian Stream and paddle north nearly 100 miles to where the river meets the St John. It is a trip of great variety, we travel lakes, rapids, and meandering quiet water, with few portages, only 200 yards at Allagash Falls and short lifts around two old dams. Challenging Chase Rapids teaches you to read the whitewater and will test paddling skills you've practiced along the way. We explore sites of early logging activity like the Tramway, and hike to expansive view of the Maine woods from the fire tower on Priestly or Round Pond Mountain. Campsites are primitive and beautiful, and we try to allow plenty of time for relaxing, swimming, and exploring, especially at magnificent Allagash Falls. Wildlife is abundant along the river, and sightings of moose are frequent in the summer months. The Allagash trip is suitable for any level of ability, from novice to advanced paddler, and is ideal for families and friends seeking quality outdoor time together, as well as solo travelers to meet new friends and share the beauty and peacefulness of the north woods.
