The course for this race is 7.4 miles from Millinocket Lake Dam to Kermit Crandall Park in Millinocket. Millinocket Stream is a drop pool stream with many interesting and busy class II/II+ rapids during the first 4 miles. They come at you at a consistent and comfortable pace. After the first road bridge is a snowmobile bridge that sometimes needs to be portaged depending on water level. Portage options can happen on either river right or left. At about mile 4, paddlers will experience the grand finale of Turtle Pit Rapids. A 3/4 mile long class II/III rapid that requires navigation and river reading skills as there are mid-stream boulders and pour overs. Optional portage on river right. After Turtle Pit Rapids the river calms and paddlers will have a sprint of quick water which brings you into downtown Millinocket. Check out our Facebook page for some video and photos of the Stream.
