First, we'll meet at our mountain top off-grid log home, view our maps and review kayaking safety, pack a lunch, load in the kayaks and gear. Then we'll drive (guests following along in their own vehicles) westerly out of town, to the Brown Company logging roads, deep into the Maine Woods. We may spot a moose or a deer along the way. We'll park at the footpath leading to Pond-in-the-River, unload the boats and carry them down to the water. Paddling halfway around the lake, we'll pass the outlet of the Rapid River, where world class fly fishing is popular. Then we'll pass by the remains of the "Alligator", a steam barge used on the lake in the early 20th century. We'll beach our kayaks where the pond empties back into the Rapid River again. We'll hike through the woods to our picnic spot, the historic site of "Pondy" or Lower Dam, dismantled several years ago. After lunch, we'll stroll down the Carry Road (today, a trail) and view the house exteriors where Louise Dickinson Rich lived in while she wrote her famous book, "We Took to the Woods". Depending on group consensus and time constraints, we may also hike to Middle Dam on Lower Richardson Lake, a mile down the Carry Road.
A Registered Maine Guide for the past 16 years, this is one of my favorite lakes to kayak. I've spent the last 28 years exploring Western Maine; many of the lakes are remote and can only be accessed by remote dirt roads and hidden footpaths leading to the water's edge. This is one of those lakes. The Carry Road, where Louise Dickinson Rich wrote about her secluded life in the book "We Took to the Woods", can only accessed by boat, or miles of hiking. I also own two mountain view off-grid cabins and a Village Tiny House rental, optional accommodations if you need them while here. Please inquire!

We will be driving remote logging roads, kayaking remote Pond-in-the-River and hiking the Carry Road in Upton, Maine. We'll visit Forest Lodge, a complex of remote structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. If we are lucky, we can also peek inside them!
