Explore the salt marshes at the mouth of Buckeye Brook as well as Conimicut Point and Rocky Point on this paddle with the Buckeye Brook Coalition. The trip offers scenic views, and education about the local communities, the environment and its history.
This trip will require a bit more paddling experience than on previous Buckeye Brook trips because it is mostly in Narragansett Bay, although not too far from shore. We will launch from a central location, travel to Conimicut Point and the salt Marsh, then backtrack and continue on to Rocky Point, and then return to the starting point. Anyone who is not up for the entire trip can cut it short before continuing on to Rocky Point.
About 2/3 of the way through the paddle we will stop for a bathroom break at Rocky Point, where there is a Porta-John.
