CLASS I-III     4.5 miles
  The put-in is not too far from Bangor, as you can see on the road map further down. The wonderful Hancock County scenery and the water flowing gracefully down Tannery Brook River are reasons enough to come here and paddle. This section of Tannery Brook River in Maine is 4.5 miles long and it is classified as a class I-III section by American Whitewater. The average Maine whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master
    than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that the rivers in this state are less demanding. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Getting some good exercise and just
being out on the river for a while will make you glad you came. There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This is a pretty decent length  
section, suitable for an afternoon trip.

Briefly about the general area:
Take a hike on the Bald Mountain Trail, and Turtle Cove is very near and is a great location to have a look at. Tannery Brook River is right by the Peaked Mountain Trail, and you can hit the beach if you want, Jesse Beach is practically right here. Coming to this river is always a good idea. A spree to Two Bush Rock is always fun, and Dunn Beach is pretty close by if you're in a beach type of mood. Here at Tannery Brook River you'll in all probability meet some folks from Ellsworth. Tannery Brook River gets a common amount of rainfall.
