Quick Waters, Smooth Waters: A Paddlers' Map to the Farmington River
A detailed map/poster of the Farmington River. The back of the map includes details on the rapids, put-ins and take-outs of the River. This map was developed to answer the questions of where to paddle on the Farmington, how to get there and what kind of water conditions should I expect. The Farmington is remarkable in it's variety. One can paddle in heavy rapids all day and spend a mellow eying floating under the moon on a tranquil section. The Farmington is an outstanding river resource, not only for boating, but fishing and other active and passive recreation. By David and Carrie Sinish.
Comprehensive guide to recreation on the Farmington River with sections devoted to Boating, Fishing, Geology, Wildlife and History. The Farmington River Guide divides the river into 7 different sections from the Headwaters in Beckett, MA to it’s confluence with the Connecticut River in Windsor. Select a section to learn about the specific geology of that region as well as locations of Canoe launches and other recreational related items. PLEASE NOTE that some of the information in the paddle section is outdated, as put-ins and take-outs have changed over the years. Copywrite FRWA 1999
