Hi folks - the campground is now full, but if you are interested in a day-trip you can join us one or both days. We will be paddling: |
Saturday, October 9th
Housatonic River Sheffield, MA to Ashley Falls, MA
This 8-mile trip begins at the Covered Bridge in Sheffield, MA and ends at the Route 7A Bridge in Ashley Falls CT. The river twists and turns through fields and meadows along the foothills of the Berkshires.
Sunday, October 10th
Housatonic Ashley Falls, MA to Falls Village, CT
This 10.5-mile trip begins where the previous trip ends. We will put in at the Route 7 Bridge in Ashley Falls CT and take out at Falls Village above the dam. This section also meanders through fields and meadows in the foothills of the Berkshires including Bartholomews Cobble a National Natural Landmark. There is one dam to portage in Canaan.
Probably meet at the put-in at 9:30 for the shuttle. More on that to follow. Let me know if you plan to attend and I will get you the details.
