    Hi Neil,
    I saw that you had written that rental kayaks had to be transported by car. I remember renting at Pawtuckaway last year and meeting up with a group by kayak. Is that possible tomorrow?
    Thanks.
    Nancy

      Hi Matt and Neil,

      Thanks for the offer Matt. I don't have a problem getting there, but I appreciate the offer. Neil, The Mountain Trading Post opens at 10 on May 4, tomorrow. I'm assuming the area you're starting from isn't close to where the kayak rentals are.

  • Dot M.

    Will you be near the rental place? Dot

      The only rental place for kayaks is Mountain Road Trading Post but you need to rent it there and load it onto your car and drive to Pawtuckaway State PArk

    • Neil S.

      Not sure how long it depends on how nice a day it is. However you can leave the group whenever you need to to make your time schedule.
