|Sunday, Aug 3||West Branch Penobscot||III-IV||Paddling in the shadow of Mt. Katahdin. The river is accessible by road along its length, so some folks may skip the hard parts and make a Class II-III run of it. Rip Gorge is absolutely one of the most scenic and difficult runs in Maine and the rest of the river is not too shabby either!||Greg Winston||505-1922||email|
