Riverside Park, Carrabassett River
Park in the large dirt parking lot along route 27, then follow the overgrown paved trail leading from the left hand side of lot into the woods. The trail will split, and you follow the smaller path down to the water. You can see the river from the parking lot, so it is easy to find.
The shore is comprised of smooth rocks and pebbles, and there are shallow swimming areas. There is a large rock that we did see someone jumping from, but it seemed to be about 4 feet at the deepest. The rocks here are very slippery, and water shoes are probably a good idea. Even though the water is shallow, this is a very pretty area. We saw what seemed to be bear droppings, so be aware that you may encounter large wildlife.
