Paddle at Flint Pond/Lake Quinsig, Shrewsbury

  • May 18, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • Flint Pond

Paddle Flint Pond/Lake Quinsig, Shrewsbury  *launch* at 9:00am

This is an easy paddle, about 1 1/2 hours, so it will be a good route for beginners, we'll go through the pond into the lake by Sunset Beach, continue through the lake a bit and back into the pond at the other side.  Part of the lake appears will be off-limits due to rowing practices but we'll have plenty of the lake available to explore. We'll meet at the Flint Pond State Boat Ramp on Rt. 20 in Shrewsbury, which is about 100 yards east of the Shrewsbury/Worcester line. The entrance to the boat ramp is at the traffic light at the intersection of Rt. 20 and Edgemere Blvd.

    I scored a spot on the Whitehall Paddle the same day, just before I got moved up from the wait-list here. Hopefully someone else will use and enjoy this paddle.

    Does this cost anything? If so, how much?

      Our trips are free, this is not a business, just setting time and place for people to meetup to paddle.

    Can anyone recommend a place nearby to rent a kayak? (I'm not familar with the area as I am visiting from Upstate NY). Thanks.

      Hi Jim, Unfortunately there aren't many on site rentals in the area, but if you are willing to put it on your car, EMS and New England Backpacker have rentals, you don't even need a roof rack, they will give you what you need to put it on your car.

    Hi everyone, just recently bought a new Kayak and I'm ready to get started. I can't wait to meet everyone. If I can get into this event I think I may do Whitehall if anyone wants to join me.

    Can I come with a paddleboard instead of Kayak?

    May 1, 2013

    • Christine

      Yes, that is fine, we paddle at a leisurely pace, so as long as you can keep up you are welcome to do that.
