Explore Maine’s Allagash Wilderness Waterway
September 2 – 6

Join us for a five day trip down the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in Northern Maine. We’ll start at Churchill Dam on September 2, paddling down the pristine Allagash River and along a few lakes longer than wide to the junction with the St. James River.

The early autumn season in the Maine North Woods is typically characterized by mild temperatures, blue skies and few insects. A side trip is possible to Acadia National Park. Previous canoeing or camping experience would be a plus.

For more information call one of the trip co-organizers: Dennis Michael Plank at 216-939-8229 or John Holian at 440-777-7903. Click here to join the event on Facebook.
