White Water Run from Pontook Dam to Bofinger

Sunday July 10th
As part of the Source to Sea we are offering a run down the white water below Pontook Dam.
For those hard core paddlers, you can put in below the dam and paddle down to Bofinger Conservation Area since the dam releases water on weekends for recreational boaters. Please arrive at the Mahoosuc Inn at 9:00 AM prior to going to Pontook Reservoir. This section has some class three rapids when there is a water release but can be a very bony paddle during the week when the water release is much lower. The take out point would be
Bofinger N44º36.885 W071º13.326’
