Taunton River in Massachusetts

Trip Overview

I entered river from Cherry St. bridge in Bridgewater, MA.

Paddled down river through Middleboro, Raynham, Taunton, Dighton and on into Freetown. The water was low for first few miles also lots of fallen trees. I did this trip in two days. Weather was great temps were in the high 70's .

I stayed over night at about the half way point. Just found a spot and put up camp. Second part of trip was a tidal part of the river it was a bit harder.

I finished at Hathawy Park in Assonet .
