Due to weather and low water, this leg has been cancelled. However, the tour at Norlands is still on. Please register on line for the tour as we will be providing lunch. Tour starts at Norlands at 1:30PM. Click this link to Norlands Living History Center.


Though longer than most of our legs, this idyllic paddle through West Central Maine farmlands is interrupted by two class two rips. Experienced paddlers only, please.
Meet at 8:30 at the Livermore Falls put-in off foundry Road just below the Livermore Fallls Dam


After the paddle we will tour the Norland's Living HIstory Center in LIvermore. Click here to view the website and address. The Center has been kind enough to open for us on this leg of our journey down the river. The center will be open from 1:30 to 4 for our group to tour. If the paddle gets cancelled either due to too low water levels or rain, we will still tour the Norland's Living History Center. 290 Norlands Road, Livermore Maine 04253.
