We have no plans to create paddling guides or maps for this stretch of river. Paddlers of this segment will encounter beaver dams, fallen trees, steep banks at bridges, impassable water falls with no defined portages, limited public access points, and other challenges.
This stretch of river is popular, however, for birding, angling, hunting, fiddlehead harvesting, waterfalls, photography and other adventures. Please respect any private property signs or postings; please don’t park in front of fire department hydrants. Please remember that it is always illegal to walk on railroad tracks.
RRCT’s Flowing North Preserve is located on this stretch of river, with no developed trails.
One short paddle trip option within this segment is to launch at the Intervale Preserve at Intervale Road and paddle upstream for a distance, jumping beaver dams, then return. More than a mile of the frontage upstream from the Intervale Road is conserved by RRCT ownership, RRCT conservation easements, and a MaineDOT conservation easement.
