A quiet countryside paddle with excursions to an historic mansion and a beautiful state park. This beautiful river has a delightfully rural quality. Despite its proximity to industry and a rapidly expanding urban population, much of the shoreline is composed of marsh, forest, and field. Along the eastern shore, there are opportunities to explore quiet trails beneath stately white pines at Vaughan Woods Memorial State Park, and to enjoy the historic Hamilton House, a splendid Federal-style building, surrounded by magnificent gardens.
