The Allagash River is the star of Maine's great canoe rivers. At over ten million acres, the Maine North Woods encompass a region some five times the size of Yellowstone National Park. And in all that area there isn't a single paved road. Largely owned by private timber companies, these woods and waters are the largest uninhabited region in the lower 48. You'll find nearly 100 miles of lakes and rivers here. The most common trip is from Telos Lake to the confluence with the St. John River.
