(I waited on the shore for them to return.... our friends took the canoe trip).
You rent a canoe, you paddle/float around this winding stream/river; you try not to tip over; you see lots of wild flora/fauna (flowers/trees/animals/insects). From my landlubber viewpoint that sums up their boat trip.
From their viewpoint: it was thrilling, it was quiet and they got some interesting pics, they got stuck once and had to get out and haul the boat over a log (very exciting), and it was peaceful.
So it depends on YOUR viewpoint, whether this is the path for you.
The signs say "Beginners welcome" but I wasn't going to take them up on it.Our friends are not novice canoeists. The stream runs about 3-5 miles per hour (about a brisk walking pace). The stream looks brownish (from vegetation decay) and the shores are sandy and wooded.
Total run from Munson School Bridge to Indian Ford Road is about 10 miles (a two or three hour ride). There is also an entry half-way down at Red Rock Bridge.
Munson Bridge is on route 4 just east of route 191.
Indian Ford Bridge is on Indian Ford Road which you access from route 191, 10 miles south of route 4.
Red Rock Bridge is also accessed from route 19. it is on a park road about 5 miles south of the intersection of routes 191 and 4.
to get there:
from Milton: connect to Munson Highway (route 191) and go north to connect to route 4
