CLASS I-IV     8 miles
  This stretch of Magalloway River is 8 miles long and has been rated as a class I-IV section by American Whitewater. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master in this state than those in other states, so don't forget that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. If you're coming from Berlin it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further
    down. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good places for that around here. This is not the only paddling
stretch in this river system, there are others too. The nature scenery of Maine and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. This stretch is mid length, you can easily run it on an afternoon.
