Quiet water is something special - it offers adventure and enjoyment for paddlers of all ages and levels of ability. Distinctly different from the rush of whitewater canoeing, quiet-water paddling is more reflective, offering family and friends the chance to share a nature walk on water - to see wildlife close up, enjoy the turn of the seasons, take in peaceful surroundings, and investigate the riches of life in and around freshwater lakes and ponds. In this title you will find complete how-to and where-to information for over 100 quiet water destinations with detailed descriptions of each lake and pond, with maps, photographs, paddling routes, and a summary of the natural world in and around the water. Information includes: permits needed for restricted lakes, fishing and seasonal highlights; complete driving, parking and canoe put-in directions; local picnicking, camping, and lodging; safety and equipment tips; hidden lakes and ponds in southern New England - all easily accessible and gloriously rich in nature. Alex Wilson has spent four years investigating New England's quiet waters for the Appalachian Mountain Club.Wilson, Alex is the author of 'Quiet Water Canoe Guide Massachusetts/Connecticut/Rhode Island' with ISBN 9781878239198 and ISBN 1878239198.
