Yellow Canoe is correct, except for about 200 feet the 2 mile Mud Pond Carry is not wheelable. If you are paddling sections you should check ahead and find out if you need a cart.
If you are through-paddling you'll find a cart invaluable. In Maine the 3+ mile Rapid River Carry is mostly cartable but rough. The short carry form Upper Richardson to Mooslookmeguntic is on a dirt road and the 1.25 mile carry to Rangeley Lake is on a paved road. The 3+ mile carry from Rangeley to the the Dead river is on a road and wheelable, the 1 mile portage from the Flagstaff Dam past the falls is wheelabe as is the the 1 mile carry past Grand Falls on the Dead River. The 5+ mile Spencer Rips portage is definitely wheelable along with the 3 mile Demo Road carry and the 2 mile Northeast Carry. After the Northeast Carry you really don 't need a cart for the rest of the trail. If you have one you might use it on the trail past Allagash Falls.
