Service Description

The West Branch of the Penobscot River is a family and group-oriented experience enjoyed by beginners and experienced paddlers. Known for its solitude, scenery, and fishing this is a 5-day trip that covers roughly 35 miles from Lobster lake to Umzooscus stream. You will put in at lobster before entering the west branch of the Penobscot river and making your way north to cross Chesuncook lake and then end at Umbsooskuss stream. This trip finds time to visit Chesuncook village where only a handful of year-round residents reside. One resident; Jack murphy runs Chesuncooks only store with an inventory of three things: homemade root beer kept ice cold in an old fashion fridge, homemade bread, and soft, sweet fudge made in several flavors.
