Nice, flat-water paddling upstream toward Tewksbury and downstream to the Ballardvale Dam in Andover. The downstream section passes through several wildlife reservations.
Easy paddling, though on the day we paddled, 6-23-2019, the late spring runoff produced a good downstream current toward the dam. Not unmanageable, but there were a few quick-water spots and it was a little work paddling back upstream against the current. In the summer months, the current is slower, and it's an easy paddle.
