St. John River
This journey down the St. John covers over 100 miles of scenic Maine wilderness from Baker Lake to Allagash Village. You will paddle through stretches of open, calm water interspersed by a series of small rips up to Class II and III rapids. All along the route, you will learn about the region's vast history…of its early native inhabitants to its present day forestry practices. We will take our time to enjoy the unfolding of spring and its many treasures as we set up camp each day along the majestic banks of this river. This trip is suitable for beginners as well as advanced paddlers. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn and practice the art of poling a canoe. Each journey down the St. John is a new experience. Come and acquaint yourself with its presence!
