Lamprey River

Unspecified • 7 mi • 0 ft

A diverse paddle on the longest river on the New Hampshire seacoast. During the course of its 60 mile journey from Northwood to Newmarket, the Lamprey changes from a small rocky stream to a large tidal river. In between it alternates between slow meanders and rocky rapids, reaching Class III at Packers Falls in Durham. This trip explores 7.0 miles of this National Wild and Scenic River as it winds its way through Epping. It starts out rough and rowdy and then slows to flat water. Along the way you will see beautiful hardwood forests and farms as well as signs that this is one of the fastest-growing areas in New England.
