just go up to Lobster Lake and back along Lobster Stream or go down the West Branch to Chesuncook.
All the way to Rip Dam from Lobster Lake is some fifty miles..43 if you just launch from the Lobster trip and bypass the lake.
There is usually no current on Lobster stream though I have see it flow both ways..after ice out things are sometimes wild.
If you go down to Chesuncook Village you will need a shuttle...if you go from Lobster to Rip you will need a shuttle too.
Yes there will be bugs. Come prepared. They are simply part of the North Maine Woods.
One poster alluded to the cost. Well the roads are private and not maintained with tax dollars and there are campsite fees as well as toll charges.
