A pleasant, quiet paddle through miles of protected riparian forest and wetland. The nearly 4.5 river miles that flow between the New Lenox Road bridge and the footbridge over Woods Pond are slow and pensive, quietly winding through meanders and past shallow backwaters. Over nearly the entire distance the river remains within the shelter of the Housatonic Valley Wildlife Management Area, and the protected riparian forest and wetlands are alive with wildlife and colorful wildflowers.
