We will be dropping into the Squannacook Conservation Area and paddling up to Groton swimming hole. Here we can try to find a spot to dock along the bank, and have a lunch/snack.
paddle distance to the lunch spot is 2.5miles. After lunch we will head back down stream towards the cars. For a total trip of 5 miles.
There is no spot to rent kayaks. You will need to transport your own kayak, it's up to you to have your own life vest, and paddle at your own speeds. This is not a fast paddle it is a calm river and ment for a easy paddle.
Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:
There will be a balloon placed on either side of the driveway. As I always drive past it. The entrance is next door from our driveway is the West Groton Water Dept Building. For your GPS use "Squannacook Conservation Area, Shirley, MA"
