At the recent annual meeting of the Penobscot River Advisory Committee, which reports to the Bureau of Parks and Lands, Great Northern Paper announced that is opposing multiple-run rafting trips on the West Bank of the Penobscot and that it will deny acces across its land to outfitters who truck rafts and customers back for second and third trips through Ripogenus Gorge and the Cribworks. Great Northern's resource manager, Dan Corcoran said the trips have been a problem for twenty years; they interfere with logging road traffic and present safety problems. Jim Murton, a whitewater outfitter, disagrees with Great Northern's decision, saying that multiple runs have allowed him to build North Country Rivers into one of the leading rafting companies.
