Sunday pick up paddle - Pawtuxet in Hope
Posted by Skye on 10/31/2019, 8:03 am
The high is only 50 on Sunday so we are highly recommending a wet suit or dry suit. At the very least, a change of clothes in a waterproof dry bag is required. |
Meet at noon on Sunday, November 3 for a 12:30 launch. We may not get past the scratchy section towards the end, as the river is probably low... but it should be sunny and a pleasant, low key trip. We have seen coyote crossing and deer from the river on previous trips.
Upper Pawtuxet River, Hope RI
Suitable for all boats and levels of experience.
Hope Landing Access. Rt.116 to Hope Furnace Road, access to upper Pawtuxet River.
You may paddle up to the Scituate Reservoir and back again. The water is very clean, coming directly from the reservoir. A 4 mile round trip.
Coming from the North, travel on Route 116 South into the village of Hope, in the town of Scituate. Just past the junction of Rt. 115, look for the bridge crossing the river. Turn right onto Hope Furnace Road. The access to Hope landing is down a short gravel drive.
Coming from the South travel on Route 116 North into the village of Hope, in the town of Scituate. The access, Hope Landing, will be on your left just after entering Scituate, before the bridge crossing the river. Drive down a short gravel drive onto Hope Furnace Road.
