East Inlet

Two miles off Route 3 on a well maintained logging road, you will find this wonderfully pristine watershed. Moose commonly come to the edges to graze on the aquatic grasses. Overhead the Blue Heron flies while small brook trout rise to feed on hatching insects. East Inlet is an ideal spot for canoeing. Paddle up the feeder brook to Norton Pool. Donated to the Nature Conservancy by the paper company, the East Inlet area has one of the few remaining virgin stands of forest in the east. Truly a special place in our vast northern forest. We offer row boat rentals on East Inlet.
