    Maine: Allagash Wilderness Waterway

    Is anybody familiar with the Allagash Wilderness Waterway? How is it for hanging? Or, should I bring a tent?

    Maine has lots of trees so you will have no problem on the Allagash or just about anywhere else in Maine.

    The route is through land managed for forest products. As I recall they leave a barrier strip along the waterways thus trees should not be an issue.
    YMMV

    Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)

    Here is a link to a trip report thread of someone who has gone on the Allagash. My family is planning a trip there this August.

    Bingo.

    although some stands are small fir densely packed. But really, you wont have any issue.

    Can you please pack me and take me with you? I miss it up there! Have fun!

    Thanks everybody for the help. I've tried searching for TR's and the like with little success. Your responses were very helpful.

    Kineo -- We plan to be up there in mid-August also. Thanks for the trip report. It (along with the pics) was very helpful.

    We are headed up there in mid-August hoping to avoid the worst of the flies.

    Black flies won't be bad in August, but the noseeums will be. Make sure your bugnet is the right size. I brought a hammock a couple years ago and didn't have any trouble finding a place to set up - the tenters in the group had more issues with tree roots. I'll be going this year in July too.
