North River - Hanover to Scituate Harbor Professional Review and Guide

"Coursing through expansive marshlands beneath wooded drumlins, the North River is a superb place for a quiet paddle. In early summer or fall, when boat traffic is light and the marsh is alive with birds, this trip is truly magical. The finest time is autumn, when golden grass surrounds your boat, oak- and maple-covered hills light up the horizon, and red-tailed hawks hang in the sky above.

Drift up- or downriver with the tide, and the North River’s eleven scenic miles seem almost effortless. Attractions: Protected salt marsh, beautiful vistas, bird-watching, fishing, sandy beach for picnicking."
