A paddle down the Rowley River is a trip to a paradisiacal expanse of sky and salt marsh. The marsh is green in summer but splendidly gold and russet in fall. Visit late in the season to catch the bird migration and miss the insatiable mosquitoes and greenhead flies of midsummer. Perfect for lazy exploration, this trip sends paddlers first up the Egypt River, a narrow and winding inlet, then down the wider Rowley River to Plum Island Sound. Wonderful for bird-watchers and those who enjoy the scenic splendor of the salt marsh. Attractions: Beautiful salt marsh, Parker River Wildlife Refuge, great bird-watching.
