The narrow Bungay River undulates through what is reputed to be the most important red maple swamp in Massachusetts. Look for Atlantic white cedar, royal fern, buttonbush, and painted turtles. Watch out for poison ivy. Trees reach out over the water, lending a closed-in, protected feeling. The section included here courses for 8 miles, which could easily require a full day to paddle, especially if you explore side channels and hidden coves and stop for a picnic lunch.
