Quinapoxet River

This is one of the rivers that I really want run this spring.  A couple of different groups ran it last Sunday, but I was on a plane to London.  Oh well...

Here's what Tommy said:
You guys missed a good day at a sweet 9.4 on the gage.  I paddled the Encore instead of the Cascade. I was nervous, never having done it above 9'. But there was a bald eagle soaring over the pool beyond the dam, and folks I know pretty well were gung ho. Turns out in some ways it was easier. Certainly more fluid.

Here are the directions:
  • River Street is closed between the take out and put in.
  • From Rt 190 exit 5 take Rt 140 south.
  • Take a right Laurel St.. Laurel St turns into Manning.
  • At the end of Manning take a left on Wachusett.
  • Bear left to stay on Wachusett when it leaves Rt 31.
  • Then take another left on River St.
  • The put in is just before the intersection of River and Harris
