This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the French Stream to Kenduskeag stretch is just one
    of them. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while are great reasons to come. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so pack your camp stove. The natural beauty
of Maine and the playfulness of the water beats anything. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good spots for that around here.
