Connecticut River paddlers celebrate trail extension plan

Jun 23rd, 2014 | By | Category: General

You can’t really cut a ribbon to open a river to canoeists, so a coalition of groups promoting paddling up and down the Connecticut River did the next best thing Saturday – they held a picnic and a celebratory paddle from Gillette Castle State Park to Selden Island State Park in Lyme.

About 80 people attended the event, with about half of them taking to the river after lunch for the estimated one- to two-hour paddle down the river in perfect summer solstice weather.
