Appalachian Trail Ferryman Stay Busy Through Fall


The Bangor Daily News recently published an interesting story about Greg Caruso, who ferries hikers on the Appalachian trail across the Kennebec River in the town of Caratunk, Maine.

According to the article, Caruso waits for hikers to signal him from across the river before paddling them across the big river in his canoe. While some hikers are able to wade across the river in places, the canoe ferry is the only officially sanctioned means of crossing the Kennebec River on the Appalachian Trail. There is no fee for use of the ferry, as Caruso is paid by Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
