Ride the Shetucket River

August 24th, 2019



Ride the Shetucket River

Ride the Shetucket returns for another season in May.

A major change carried over from last year is the addition of another shuttle day.

Because of the unpredictability of water levels, shuttle service is now available the last TWO Saturdays of each month May through September. 

If you plan to attend, do the following:  Check the Town website the Thursday before for the most recent trip up-dates.

On Saturday, sign-in
at River Park, Baltic between 9:00am and noon. 

Shuttle runs on demand from 10:00am until all registered participants are off the river.

There is no charge for shuttle service.

For additional information call Lou Dzialo at 860-237-0544.

There will be NO water release scheduled thus we will only provide transport when the river is at a level that will naturally provide for easy travel.

The ride is 4 miles long and takes approximately 2 hours.

Dates for 2019 are: May 18th, May 25th, June 22nd, June 29th, July 20th, July 27th, August 24th, August 31st, September 21st, September 28th.


Paddlers need to have PFD's and a distress whistle.
