River Description

Put in and Take out show the furthest runnable extent of the river.

There are a few ponds with flatwater between so choose your section carefully. Mostly this run is a mellow winding river, but there are also some large dams and drops. These are completely avoidable by choosing an appopriate put in and takeout.

There is a dam drop/ waterfall behind the West Charlston Post Office. This is the start of a short section with a few significant drops. (Durgin Rd to Fontaine Road.)

There is also a significant gorge below the Crawford Road bridge at the outflow of Clyde Pond. (Takeout at Clyde St).

The river ends in Newport.
