Saturday option - Jay Cronan to Bradford - rsvp please
Posted by Sharon on 6/16/2022, 8:32 pm
Please rsvp here on the message board. I love 100 acre cove, but I can't make it up to Barrington on Saturday. If you're in the same boat as I am (pun intended), here's another option - Pawcatuck River, Jay Cronan to Bradford. Shuttle required, good boat handling skills required, very tough to portage around the broken dam at Burdickville so we typically run it to the right of the little masonry island, directions and description below.
Meet at 9:45 for the 10:15 shuttle. Bring a lunch.
Jay Cronan access to Bradford on the Pawcatuck River.
41° 26.707' N 71° 40.873' W
Street address: 591 Alton Carolina Rd Charlestown, RI 02813
Jay Cronan access on the Upper Pawcatuck to the take out at Bradford.
This is a good access point for paddling on the upper Pawcatuck River above the confluence with the Wood River..
An 8-mile trip. We will put in at the Jay Cronin Access in Richmond. For the first half of the trip, that river twists and turns though
a pretty woodland, but we will need to maneuver over, under and around blwon-downed trees. For the second half of the trip below its
convergence with the Wood River in Alton, the river opens up. The broken dam at Burdickville can be run or portaged. From there, it is an
easy paddle down to the Bradford Landing.
Directions: - On Route 91 (Alton-Carolina Road) between Carolina and Wood River Junction, look for signs for this DEM fishing access site on the
south side of the road, next to a bridge across the Wood River.
