Fall Foliage Paddle iCal

Sunday, October 1 2017 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Join the Androscoggin Land Trust to celebrate fall and the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend with a paddle on Gulf Island Pond, along the shore of the Androscoggin Riverlands State Park.

The paddling trip will depart from the boat access on Center Bridge Road in Turner at the northern end of the park, and include a round trip of approximately eight miles depending on the weather and water conditions. Paddlers will follow the shoreline of the state park. We’ll take a short hike on the Homestead Trail, midway, to see foundations of old farmsteads, all that is left of a thriving community flooded out by the construction of Gulf Island Dam in 1927. Then we will paddle downriver to an island, have lunch, and turn back. The Riverlands was first conserved in the early 1990s by conservationists who played a role in creating the Androscoggin Land Trust.

Bring your own boat and paddling gear (life vests mandatory). Bring wind/rain/sun protection gear, binoculars, camera, water, and your lunch.

Paddle will be held rain or shine, unless conditions are treacherous. For directions and more information about the park, visit www.maine.gov/androscogginriverlands. The Center Bridge boat access is between the entrance to the park and the Greene-Turner Bridge.  Look for a small blue sign with a boat on it.
