The Quaboag starts at the Lucy Stone Park as a class II river
for almost half of the run then turns into a class III pool drop river with one carry around a
dam. At the higher water levels some of the rapids become very turbulent and are
filled with powerful holes that can easily swamp an open boat. For a complete description
refer to the guidebook "Classic Northeastern Whitewater Guide" by Bruce Lessels.
Caution: Be on a constant lookout for downed trees. There are a lot of beavers
in the area and they're all on steroids. They've been knocking down huge trees that
have spanned the entire river. This video, recorded 3/22/2014, is one scary example.
