The North Branch Dead River flows from the beautiful Chain of Ponds, near the Canadian border, south to Flagstaff Lake. Its mix of lakes, flatwater, and rapids provide variety, and due to several access points, the river can be done as either a2-3 day trip or as a series of day paddles. Note that most rapids are too often low to paddle after mid June, but most can be portaged or lined even at low water.
