Section 12

Paddlers today following this most remote section of the Trail will experience the vast stretches of forested shoreline that sustained the Abenaki for centuries, the interconnected waters that inspired Thoreau, and rusting relics from the days of log drives. This state-managed Wild and Scenic corridor known as the Allagash Wilderness Waterway offers large and small lakes, swiftly flowing river, and unparalleled wildlife-watching opportunities.
