This and the rivers of the Great Swamp are the two premier paddling destinations in Rhode Island. Expect to see large numbers of birds and other wildlife, along with diverse trees and shrubs. The river meanders through marshes on its way to join the Great Swamp’s Charles River as the major tributaries of the Pawcatuck.
