The Pemaquid Watershed Association Padders will kick off the 2016 season with a paddle on the Pemaquid River from Bristol Mills to Biscay Pond on Saturday, May 21 at 10 AM. This is a very easy, beautiful paddle ideal for all paddle enthusiasts regardless of expertise and a good warm up for the start of the paddle season. Please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start time.
Public restroom available; duration 2 hours; optional lunch at the Bristol Diner.
Directions: From Damariscotta take Route 129/130 South. At Hanley’s market Routes 129 & 130 split, stay straight on Route 130 for 5.5 miles to the Bristol Mills boat launch on your left (before the swimming hole and dam).
All paddles are free and open to the public. Paddlers must supply their own kayak or canoe and wear a personal floatation device (life jacket). Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The paddle will be cancelled in the event of rain.
