A paddle through a chain of lakes in a pristine wilderness watershed at the foot of Mount Katahdin. The Debsconeag chain of lakes lay at the foot of Mount Katahdin amid a pristine wilderness watershed containing the highest concentration of remote ponds in New England. To Native Americans, Debsconeag means “carrying place,” an apt description given the network of portage paths they established long ago to connect these beautiful, secluded waterways. This trip ventures across these ancient routes and into the heart of the Northern Forest from Debsconeag Deadwater to Third Debsconeag Lake.
