Hemlock Gorge

Paddling: Charles River, Newton at Needham St to Lower Falls pedestrian bridge.

Water was pretty high and fast. It was fun to paddle through the Hemlock Gorge! I just had to be careful to pull out before the falls. Those drops don't have a soft landing.

3.5 miles. 4 waterfalls to portage around. 2.5 hours including short walk back to my house from the river.

Waterflow was 650 CFS on Charles in Waltham.
