Please arrive in time to be in your kayak (butts in boats) and ready to paddle at 8:00 AM. Plan to spend about 1-1/2 to 2 hours on the water. If people are willing, we may stop at one of the larger islands and have a short break to explore (be sure you have rope to tether your kayaks.)
IMPORTANT: Do not program "Whitehall State Park" into your GPS. The parking for the boat launch is on Route 135 between Hopkinton and Westborough Centers. The nearest Road to the launch is Dale Road in Hopkinton.
