canoe run on the kennebec 4th of July weekend
« on: June 30, 2016, 04:48:04 PM »
This is an easy 9 mile run on the kennebec but lots of fast water and easy rapids. Even when it's a drought the river will have high enough water in the afternoon on weekends because it's dam controlled and releases are made for rafters. Most of the rafters run further upstream where the rapids are more difficult. People also tube this section. It takes about 3 hours.

These guys are shuttling me up the river for $20 from Caratunk so I don't need to bring two cars. It's about an hour north of my camp

 Probably going to run it this Saturday (weekend of the 4th of July)
