Overview

The West River Fall Release is one of the biggest paddling events in New England. We'll run the Class II section as a group for a morning warmup each day. This is a really fun, pretty intense Class II run with bigger waves than many Class II runs. After the group run, paddlers will have the option to do more runs on Class II or try the Class III on their own (not as part of this trip) All the campsites at Jamaica State Park have long-since been spoken for, but the nearby Winhall Brook Campground (https://www.recreation.gov/camping/winhall-brook/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=73483) usually has sites available. It's much quieter and more relaxed than the party at the State Park. The State Park requires a day pass for entry.

The AMC was there for me when I wanted to learn how to paddle a kayak on whitewater. Now I'm leading trips to give others the same opportunity.
