We include two sections of the Nashua River, with this, the northern one, backed up behind a dam in Pepperell. The numerous channels and coves provide hours of paddling and habitat for numerous wildlife. Look for muskrat, beaver, mink, otter, and many bird species.

This was a nice paddle. We stopped by the dam where we pulled our kayaks to shore near the rail trail. We then walked into town for some lunch, ice cream and a walk towards the library enjoying some sites along the way. Great trip and wouldn't think twice about doing it again!!
