Monday Paddle West River Northbridge
Posted by Frank on 2/19/2022, 1:13 pm
Earl and I plan to paddle a section of the West River putting in off Mendon Rd in Northbridge on Monday. This is among my favorite winding river places to paddle. With lots of water we may be able to explore some of the side streams. Current is usually slow. I have not paddled it recently and do not know about blockages etc but we can usually go upstream for several miles and / or downstream to the West Hill Dam.
Parking is on the road next to the bridge near 717 Mendon Rd Northbridge MA. Arrive there at 10:00 and we'll launch as soon as we get the boats to the water. The put-in is about 100 yards down an abandoned road, consider bringing wheels. It was snow covered on Thursday but should be clear now.
Hope some of you can join us. Frank
