Dead River Rafting – Summer Dam Release

 Apr 11, 2014 - Maine

In the summer, the Dead River has a series of dam releases for intermediate, Class III white water rafting. This 16 mile trip is ideal for families with younger children or adults who want intermediate action.

The Dead features long, continuous rapids throughout the trip. Rapids such as “Spencer Rips”, the chute at “Elephant Rock” and the famous

“Poplar Hill Falls” are among the dozens you’ll encounter. The Dead in the Summer is a favorite at Crab Apple because it combines 16 miles of whitewater thrills with remote wilderness scenery.
