The Reservoir #1 Dam and the headwaters of Sudbury River.
At Winter Street in Framingham MA. Pictures taken April 2017.

Across the street from the Reservoir #1 Dam is the Sudbury Aqueduct walking trail.

Scouting for a put in at the aqueduct trail, I can see the north side of the Winter Street bridge to be easier.

There is a small gap on the fence to allow to put in at the north side of Winter Street bridge.

At Simpson Park on Central Street where a portage is required.

The Fiddlers Green Dam on Sudbury River at Simpson Park. The top of the Fiddlers Green Dam where one has to portage.

This is a very short portage only 20 feet or so. Put in is just below the Fiddlers Green Dam.

The take out is at Centennial Park at the end of Centennial Place in Framingham.
