It connects the Lake with the West Branch of the Penobscot River by a “carry” corridor for portaging canoes. Henry David Thoreau used this connector twice during his explorations of the Maine woods during the 19th century. A canoe trip route on the West Branch from Roll Dam to Lobster Lake winds through the township.
