Thursday Paddle: Green Hills Pond
Thursday September 22nd @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Bring your own kayak/canoe, paddle, life jacket, whistle, water, snacks, etc. Green Hill Pond is similar to Ninigret, but a smaller body of water, and likewise is an enclosed bay protected by a barrier beach. Directions: Route 1 north, for approximately 9 miles (from Connecticut rte 78 junction). Take a slight right on 1A N for approximately 1.2 miles. Go right on Matunuck School House Road for 4/10 of a mile then right on Charlestown Beach Road for 1.3 miles. This will terminate at the Charlestown beach parking lot, where upon entering, turn immediately to the right and follow the dirt road down to the water. We will paddle East underneath the Charlestown Beach Road opposite the kayak center, and enter Green Hill pond.
