River Bend Farm to Millville on Saturday
Posted by Erik on 11/13/2014, 5:25 am
I paddled up to the Millville Rapid from the Blackstone Gorge last weekend, and I was surprised how much water there was. Iím thinking of doing the run from River Bend Farm down to Millville on Saturday. Weíll take out on Route 122 below the Millville Rapid to avoid the flatwater going down to the Blackstone Gorge. Anyone interested.? |
Last time we did this section was a couple of yearís ago, and it is at this level now.
The river twists and turns through River Bend Farm. There is the drop to run at Route 16 near the Stanley Woolen Mill, then it twists and turns again down to Route 122 in Uxbridge (this section can be shallow). Itís flatwater from Route 122 to the Millville Rapid. Millville Rapid is a straight shot down the middle, but can be portaged. There is a take out on Route 122 just below the Millville Rapid.
Iím thinking that we meet around 10:00 at River Bend Farm to shuttle. Itís going to be sunny, but cold on Saturday.
Let me know.
