Day Trip – Class 1 Paddling (Easy)
CUPSUPTIC RIVER: For a short trip with easy-in and easy-out access, trip length about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, take Route 4 from Rangeley towards Oquossoc to the Information Pavilion. Turn right on Route 16 towards Wilsons Mills, continue across the Kennebago River, pass the Cupsuptic Campground and approximately 1 mile past the Maine Forest Service Station to the Public Boat Access on the Cupsuptic River. Do not cross the bridge; landing is on the east side. About 1 mile up the River on the west side is “Hinkley’s Café” where camping and a picnic area are available by reservation only through Cupsuptic Campground 864-5249. 3/4 mile further up the River on the left is a cabin called Mooch’s. At this point, passage becomes impossible because of rocks and small falls. Turn around and return.
