The Allagash in Maine may not have enough water in September, you may want to check the water tables for that river. Another great Maine Canoe trip would be the West Branch of the Penobscot River, also in Maine. I will be going on that trip the first week of October. Also, in the Adirondacks there are many trips. I canoed from Old Forge to Blue Mountain Lake. It took about four days, but you can canoe Raquette Lake to Saranac too. The Penobscot has not portages while the ADK would have portages. If you do the ADK trip, get thesmall wheeled rack for the portages. Old Forge to Blue Mtn. Lake there are a couple of heavy duty portages (about 3 miles worth). If you do that one, you should stop at Bald Mountain to hike, and when you get to Blue Mountain Lake, take some dives off of Rock Island! And hike Castlerock which overlooks Blue Mtn. Lake
