Guided Allagash canoe trip with the Gamble Family, August 2013. Six days starting at Churchill Lake, paddling Chase Stream Rips, Umsaskis and Long Lakes, Round Pond, Portaging around Allagash Falls and ending in Allagash Village. Here is a testimonial from Mark Gamble who did the trip with his three sons. “When planning our trip, what I expected from Dave, was to get my three sons and me safely down the Allagash and to show us this beautiful river. What made the trip great were all the things Dave provided that I did not expect. I never expected the food to be so good or that he would be so great and patient with my kids. I also didn’t expect that Dave would be our own private trip photographer. Thanks to him, we have hundreds of memorable photographs that really captured this wonderful experience. I wouldn’t think twice about planning another canoe trip with Dave!” For more information and to book a trip visit  www.canoethewild.com

Our four day family Allagash canoe trip began on Round Pond and ended in Allagash Village. A great trip for spotting wildlife. We Paddled through easy but lively Round Pond Rips, enjoyed the scenery and great campsites. Cooking was over an open fire. A great time to rest, relax, explore and learn new skill on Maine’s Allagash Wilderness Waterway. More guided trips available with Maine guide Dave Conley of Canoe The Wild

Webster Stream Canoe Trip

Above pictures where taken on June 18-22, 2012 Webster Stream Canoe Trip with East Grand School students. webster Brook/Stream is an excellent back country, dam controlled, whitewater canoeing adventure available all summer long for adult, scout and youth groups looking for exciting back country whitewater canoeing adventure in Maine. Being in reasonably good physical condition and having good basic canoeing and camping skills required. Ages 14 and up.

Starting in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway at the Chamberlain Thoroughfare or Telos Landing, we sneak out the ‘back door’ of the Allagash via the Telos Cut. This is the route that Henry David Thoreau traveled more than 150 years ago on his way to Bangor. Below Telos Lake, we paddle the mile long Telos Cut (class II-III) to Webster Lake. It is 3 miles across Webster Lake and 6.5 miles to Indian Carry, a class III drop that can be run or lined. The next 2 miles to Grand Pitch has several class III ledge drops that can be paddled or carried. Grand Pitch is a mandatory 1/2 mile carry. Shortly after is Grand Lake Matagamon. It is 8.25 miles down lake to the Dam or take out at a landing near the north entrance to Baxter State Park.

Telos to Grand Lake Matagamon, 24 miles, 4 days

Telos to Whetstone Falls, 51 miles, 6-7 days
