Access for this property is along Route 16 and Boy Scout Road. 

Description

Over 60% of all the bird species ever seen in Franklin County have been documented on this stretch of road. This dirt drive cuts through prime boreal habitat and allows you to walk up to nesting warblers, compare vireo species in close proximity, and even pick up waterbirds along the Kennebago.

The winding Kennebago River is dominated by alders and thick spruce. Access is gained through Boy Scout Road, a dead-end, dirt road.

Almost three miles of easy, flat walking along Boy Scout Road. On the water, you will find another 3 miles of meandering Class I and II paddling, along with excellent flyfishing.
