100 Acre Cove and the Runnins River:Take a leisurely paddle of about 4 to 5 miles around the saltwater marsh islands of 100 Acre Cove, and then into the scenic twisty turny high reeds of the Runnins River in Barrington and East Providence.The tide should be high enough for us to float over the Mobil Dam into the freshwater section of the Runnins River briefly.On the return you can take a short snack break at Knockum Hill to absorb the wonderful vistas of a Hundred Acre Cove. There is some background traffic noise through a portions of this paddle.
The put-in for Hundred-Acre Cove and the Barrington River is on Route 114 (the Wampanoag Trail) in Barrington. Go south on 114 and take the last turnaround before 114 becomes a two-way road. (If you miss it, no problem---just go through the next intersection and turn around in the parking lot of the Congregational church. It's impossible to miss.) Just after the turnaround (you're now heading north), you'll see a sign on the right that says Walker Farm. Turn in; is the town dock and boat ramp. Park anywhere that's not posted.
Changes and cancellations to trips will be posted on the flatwater message board. Please check the board before leaving for any trip. Our leaders provide directions as a courtesy to paddlers however, you are responsible to refer to a map and familiarize yourself with the trip location.
