or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places.

Briefly about the general area:
Crooked River is a place with many visitors from Brownfield; going for a hike on the Albany Brook Trail is always a good adventure. Now, you may assume that's a lot but there's even more amusing things to do here in the White Mountains. Gotta ski! Mount Abram is a pleasant spot to do that, and there are good spots to explore along the Albany Mountain Trail. This river is always fun. A common amount of precipitation falls here at Crooked River. The month of August is the wettest with most of the rain, and the driest month of the year is February.
