Kenduskeag Stream is a stream, approximately 25 miles long, in the U.S. state of Maine. It is a tributary of the Penobscot River. The stream rises at the outlet of Garland Pond in the town of Garland, and flows southeast through Corinth, Kenduskeag, and Glenburn, before entering the city of Bangor. Passing through downtown Bangor, the stream drops 100 feet in 2 miles, reaching the Penobscot between the two downtown bridges across the larger river. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenduskeag Stream
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
