We will put-in at Sycamore Landing (100 New River Rd., Lincoln, RI). Look for the Blackstone River Bikeway sign and go down the hill to the parking area near the Blackstone River Watershed Environmental Center. ** NOTE ** due to the Manville Rd. bridge construction, access to this site is only accessible via the Lincoln side of the river. Follow New River Rd from Albion.
This is a nice fall round trip 3 mile flat water paddle, starting south of the Manville dam and headed towards the Albion dam and the Highland Falls Mill (a former textile and American Tourister Mill). There is potential to add a couple miles with a portage around Albion dam towards Ashton depending on water level.
Please RSVP with your full name. This paddle is set with a maximum of 15 participants.
Face coverings and social distancing are required at the launch and take out, and any time people are closer than 6’ apart. Everyone will be responsible for their own equipment and launch. You do not have to wear a face covering while paddling, but you need to have something with you at all times for this purpose. Do not attend if you are ill.
