Notes: This is one of those places you can go to paddle for an hour or make a full day of it, exploring all the way to the dam below Dundee Pond and scoot over into the Pleasant River. (But be careful with downed trees!)
*This is very close to the Mountain Division Trail. Bring a picnic and make a day of it, a great walk and a great paddle! (And there are picnic tables across the river at Shaw Park!)
**The wind can get pretty intense here... better to go early in the morning to avoid wind!
As I have shared in other posts, this is a great place to paddle. I would say it is in my top 5 for family friendly places. Kids would love to spot turtles and other wildlife! Plus, you get to paddle under a railroad trestle AND under a covered bridge!
Until this weekend I had never seen loons on this part of the Presumpscot (Said the same last week about the other branch!) But I talked to a couple who have a house here and they said they have seen them, usually early in the season and the other day they saw 5 loons! I saw 2!
