Mill Pond, Stage River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trip offers an ideal mix of Cape Cod environments, and all on a paddling excursion that leaves you plenty of time for other activities. With its classic Cape houses and quaint cottages and lively Main Street bracketed by narrow lanes, Chatham is a postcard coastal community. The fog that visits each summer (a result of warmer Nantucket Sound waters meeting those of the colder Atlantic) adds to the town’s maritime authenticity.

Launching on the Mitchell River, paddle northeast toward town on this short and scenic tidal channel that links Mill Pond and Stage Harbor. The blades and tower of an old windmill, now the dominant feature of a small town park, appear on a hill off to the left as you enter the pond; the windmill was constructed here, of course, to take advantage of the same breezes that might confront you. Circle the pond and return to the river, now on a southwest heading."
