Now available in a completely revised edition, The Connecticut River Boating Guide continues to be the classic, authoritative guide for boaters, canoeists, and kayakers on the Connecticut River. This third edition covers the entire waterway from its source at the Canadian border to Long Island Sound, dividing the river into twenty-eight reaches with accompanying GPS-compatible maps. Practical information on boating facilities, ramps, access areas, mileages, difficulty, sources of flow information, and portages makes it easier than ever to plan your next adventure along the river.

Guaranteed binding -if this binding fails, thepublisher will replace the book for free
GPS-compatible maps
Mile-by-mile directions that point out key land-marks, navigational hazards, and optional put-ins and take-outs
Information on camping, fishing, and wildlife-viewing opportunities
Sidebars on the river’s natural history, human history, flora, and fauna

This book was authored by, and published in cooperation with, the Connecticut River Watershed Council, the river’s primary watchdog and steward. Council members John Sinton, Elizabeth Farnsworth, and Wendy Sinton thoroughly revised the guide, basing the new maps and text on their latest survey of the river and on the expertise of numerous local river experts.
