Journey to the Headwaters

Put your own canoe or kayak atop the car and join FRWA for a trip to the Farmington River’s headwaters in Massachusetts. We will pay a visit to the river at Tolland (MA) State Forest, drive along Colebrook River Reservoir, then go to Colebrook CT to put in boats and paddle West Branch Reservoir from Hogback Dam. It’s a chance to see the river’s steep headwater terrain, and the awesome engineering projects that capture and control floodwaters from the north. Fall foliage or a passing eagle will be a plus! Participants meet in Winsted.

Cost per person: Members $10, non-members $15.
