Sudbury River Kayak

Hello everyone,

The goal is to enjoy a wonderful day on the Sudbury River. The launch site is located off Rt 117 in Lincoln MA. From Rt 495 you take 117 east and travel for 12.5 miles. At this point you will cross over Lee's Bridge and the launch site is on your left, immediately after the bridge. Last time we made this trip we kayaked towards the Minute Man National Park. This time we will head in the opposite direction. There are two parking lots so plenty of room.

Please be prepared to paddle at 9 am. The goal is to Kayak for about three hours and stop along the way for breaks as needed.

The following link provides a map of the launch site (#21) and will give you some insight into the trip itself.

I'm limiting the attendance to 15 people. Please remember to bring plenty of water, food and of course your camera.

Additionally, there will be no shuttling. We will return to the launch site when finished.

**PLEASE NOTE*** The organizers in this group are NOT trained leaders or instructors.  The organizers only set the time and place, each person participating in any group trip is responsible for their own safety.  Each participant is responsible for evaluating all relevant conditions for the trip and determining if their skills and equipment are appropriate for those conditions.

Required: PFD (worn), whistle, headlamp/flashlight (evening paddles). Optional/recommended: pump/bailer, insect repellent, sunscreen, water, snack, change of clothes in drybag, sunglasses, hat/visor.

In areas where there is a boat launch intended to be used by people with trailers, please, if possible, launch to the side of the ramp and do not block the ramp with your kayak or other belongings.


See you all soon.

    Nice paddle. I had lived in the area for so many years but had never paddled this section of the river and am glad I did. Will be back again.

    It was nice to meet some new people and to see some old faces. Couldn't have asked for better weather. See you all next time.

    I have to bow out, I really wanted to try it off 117 since I go home that way every day. But got a million things to finish.

    Is this 3 hours out and 3 hours back? OR 3 hours roundtrip?

    John, I'll meet you out on the water rather than at the launch site. That launch site isn't good for a SUP (too shallow and weed choked), so I'll probably launch downstream and paddle up to meet the group.

      The launch site is on the other side of Lees bridge (Rt 117) on the left. Within the description are directions to get to the launch site. Ron, I think you at my last Meet-up at this location.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
