The weather for Saturday's paddle on the Taunton River looks great. |
We will meet at 8:30 for a 9:00 launch.
Leaving from the Berkley Bridge we will travel up river for 1 1/2 hours to the new Weir Village Riverfront Park. After a short break we will return with the outgoing tide. If time allows we can take a 45 minute side trip on Three Mile River.

From Providence east on route 44.
After entering Taunton take the first right after Segregansett Country Club (0.4 mile) onto Burt St./Williams St.
After 2.6 miles turn left onto Center St. After 2.5 miles you will cross the Taunton River on the Berkley Bridge.
The launch site is immediately on your right.
The park has picnic tables and a port-a-party. There is room to park 10 vehicles.
Off site parking is available on Elm St. and at Bristol Aggie School.
Berkley Bridge is located between Taunton (Route 44) and Fall River (Routes 6 and 195),
just off of Route 138. There are several routes of travel, but the one listed above seems to be the most direct.
