Boston Kayaker

Kayaking on Concord River - in Lowell MA

Rating: One-and-a-Half Stars - This was a pleasant paddle trip. Padling time is 2 hours and 24 minutes. It was always a satisfactory paddle whenever I reached a natural end point (the Middlesex Falls) to mark my turn around on a round trip. It was a cloudy morning so the pictures are not as cheery and sunny.

  Put in at Lawrence Street
  in Lowell MA.
Paddle upriver
  and return.
Estimated round trip
  distance = 7+ miles
Middlesex Canal
