Join us for an easy paddle on the upper Charles River through Natick, Dover, & Sherborn to Rocky Narrows, about 10 miles RT. Much of this stretch is undeveloped, such as Audubon's Broadmoor sanctuary and Peters Reservation. Heron and beaver are often spotted in this section.
Canoes and rec boats are welcome on this trip and expect an easy pace. You must wear a PFD and be capable of maneuvering your boat around obstacles.
