CLASS II     0.2 miles
  This section of Goose Falls in Maine is 0.2 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II section. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so better not forget that many runs in this state are very easy. The natural beauty of Hancock County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. The
    put-in location is a reasonable drive from Rockland, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Getting a good workout and spending some quality time in nature will have you coming back for more. There
are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the Goose Falls Fd to same stretch is one of them. This is a very short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of  
good places. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp.

Briefly about the general area:
A trip to Holbrook Island Sanctuary State Park revitalizes the soul; the wonderful people of Harborside like to hang out close by. If you want to hit the beach, Redman Beach is in the vicinity, and a tour to Tom Cod Cove is always a glorious idea. This river has so much to offer. If you're here at Goose Falls, checking out Dice Head is a must; obviously, everyone loves Fort Point State Park. Goose Falls is a beautiful place to take a look at while you're at Goose Falls.
