Kayaking on Saco River - from Bartlett NH to Conway NH

Rating: Three Stars - This river is what sucked me into kayaking. River is nice flowing with the White Mountains on the horizon. Variation along the route, tree-lined stretches, some farms, occassional residences. River has many spots to beach and break. Love this river.
