Thurs., May 18, 2017 - Paddle Mashpee River, Mashpee

  • Mashpee Town Landing

    Mashpee Neck Rd., Mashpee, MA (map)

    41.600120 -70.465840

  • We'll be at the ramp pictured below at the end of the Mashpee Neck Rd.
  • This is a gorgeous paddle, end to end, but parking is only possible prior to June 15 and after Labor Day. Parking at the ramp is by sticker only and there is no parking on the road leading to the ramp. This will be our first of two spring Mashpee River paddles. The 7:04 AM high tide in Poponessett Bay should let us get all the way up the river.

    We paddle through the Mashpee Woodlands Conservation Area, perhaps seeing some birds along the shoreline and always osprey overhead. It is a beautiful paddle.

    DIRECTIONS:  Meet at the town landing at the end of Mashpee Neck Rd.  From US 6, take exit 5. Drive south on MA 149, and then turn right onto MA 28 north. Go 3.5 miles and turn left onto Orchard Road. Drive another 0.5 mile and turn right onto Quinaquisset Ave. A quick left will take you onto Mashpee Neck Rd; it’s 1.5 miles to the town landing parking the very end of the road. Do not be tempted to take a right prior to the end of the road.

    We are in the water and moving by 10:00 AM. Cancellation forced by weather will be posted the night before and I will email all who have RSVPd.

    All paddles try to provide aerobic exercise and are for experienced and energetic kayakers.   Guests are always welcome on walks, but not on paddles.
