Paddle the Border: Connecticut River, Woodsville to Haverhill
A Canoe and Kayak paddle on the Connecticut River held in May and October. PTB was started as a way for community organizations from Vermont and New Hampshire to work together to showcase our shared asset, the Connecticut River. PTB promotes the natural, cultural, scenic, and recreational resources of the Connecticut River, in a way that also provides an economic boost to the area. PTB is held twice a year weather permitting–no rain dates are planned.
The Fall Paddle 2020 date is Sunday October 4th, from the Newbury Boat Launch beside the Newbury Haverhill Bridge, to the Bugbee landing in Bradford, Vermont.
The Spring Paddle 2021 date is May 23rd: [18th Year] From Woodsville Community Field to the Bedell Bridge State Park Boat Launch off Route 10, Haverhill Corner, NH.
There is a shuttle service from the take out, to the launch sight. This Shuttle Service has been providing by Butler Bus Company. The Shuttle Service is available from 10am to 11am. This gives us a suggested launch time of 10:30 to 11:30am. The approximate paddle time for the spring and fall paddle is 3-1/2 to 4 hours.
All events are weather permitting, and all participants must abide by safe boating rules and regulations. Check the website for COVID-19 guidelines.
