Updates to AMC River Guide Maine, 4th Edition
Robinson Peak State Forest (G4-G5)
Page 68: Dead River (Big Eddy to Spencer Stream). The portage around Grand Falls has changed with the improvements by the Maine Huts and Trails. The preferred portage is on the right side and is marked by a sign. MHT puts in a floating aluminum dock in summer on the right side where the river forks and is clearly visible. From the dock, utilizing the main MHT trail and bridge is a much bigger path and shorter portage.
Page 118: Nesowadnehunk Stream (Nesowadnehunk Lake to campground 5): No longer “a delightful and easy run” and “down easy water (mostly class I and II…).” This stream has been taken over by beavers. Fine views but dead water and dragging over dams.
Page 128: Webster Stream (Telos landing to Grand Lake dam). The campsite at 4.5 miles “Webster Stream Lean-to” has been removed by Baxter State Park.
