The launch is on a dirt road behind an electrical substation on Hope Furnace Road just west its intersection with Main Street in Hope, on the south side of the river. An address of 10 Hope Furnace Rd, Scituate, RI, will get you close. If your GPS chokes on that use the town of Hope with the same address.
Required equipment: PFD, 10-foot length of rope, whistle, headlamp/flashlight (for evening paddles). And be prepared to give your emergency contact number to the host if he or she asks for it.
