Put-in/Take-out: North 4th Street Boat Launch, Old Town
Distance: 8.1 miles.
Known Hazards: There are few hazards. A few deadhead logs, some shallow rocks. In the spring, at high water, the narrow section between Orson and Indian Islands has a very strong current, encouraging some to paddle the loop clockwise to paddle this section with the current.
Paddle counter clockwise for more down-stream paddling, or clockwise for a better workout.
Access also to the Penobscot main channel to the north, Birch and Pushaw Streams.
