Paddle this beautiful, under-developed tidal river on the South Shore. We launch at Head of Westport (rentals available @ launch) and paddle 12 miles down to Horseneck beach. This tidal river is fairly shallow, so not a lot of motor boats, but will see lots of ospreys, ducks, and other birds. We paddle to mouth and take a break on Horseneck beach, then back to town for take out, then regroup for drinks at nearby restaurant on deck overlooking the river. This is a level 1.5 trip. You must be able to paddle 12 miles (tide assisted) in 4-5 hours, with breaks of course. The water is protected from seas, but we might encounter winds. You must have experience with wet exits and assisted rescues. Rain day is Sunday, June 9th.

Canceled: Wapack Trail End to End Hike (AA2B)Young Members Date: Sat June 8, 2013
Training for a Presi or Pemi traverse this summer? Join us on June 8th for an end to end hike of one of the oldest interstate trails in the Northeast, the Wapack Trail. Established in 1923, the 21-mile Wapack Trail runs between Mount Watatic in Ashburnham, MA, and North Pack in Greenfield, NH. The trail follows a skyline route along the summits of Watatic, Pratt, New Ipswich, Barrett, Temple and the Pack Monadnocks. Open ledges and rocky peaks provide sweeping views of Mount Monadnock, the Berkshires, Green Mountains, Boston and the Whites. Though we'll only be an hour and a half outside of Boston, the spruce forests lining parts of the trail will give us a feeling of being deep in the North Woods. We'll hike 21.6 miles with 4,850 ft. of gain, crossing through state forests and a wildlife refuge. We anticipate this hike will take a minimum of 12 hours. Due to the significant mileage, we'll be getting a VERY early start on the trail, in the neighborhood of 6:30 am. Trip will be limited to 8 participants.
