Paddle in the Wake of Log Rafts

Paddle on the calm Western Branch, where log rafts used to flow.

This stretch of river is very meandering, but calm. Pass by many boulders and stepping stones with metal rings still drilled in them from the days of log rafts floating down th river.

This paddle might be challenging from the occasional riffles and remote setting, but the beauty that surrounds you when paddling will make the difficulty worth it. Keep your eyes out for wildlife such as bald eagles, bears, and great blue herons.
