A technical Class II paddle through forests and historic New Boston. A regular on the New Hampshire AMC's early-spring trip list, the South Branch of the Piscataquog River is a fun paddle with plenty of rocks to dodge on its way to a wavy twist through the center of New Boston. It is a small river that must be run in March or early April when the water is high enough to float a kayak or canoe. There is one small dam that requires a short portage about a third of the way through the trip, but the dam in the center of New Boston has been breached and is easily runnable in high water.
