8 Mile Upper Farmington River Trip

Main Stream Canoes and Kayaks’ 8 Mile trip pushes off right above the High Bank rapids area inside the People’s State Forest, featuring fun fast water right from the get-go. After that, there’s time to enjoy the quiet scenery while passing through this gem of a state park.

The remainder of this three and a half hour route abounds with a variety of beautiful New England treed and grassy areas along the Farmington’s twisting banks and rivulets, to keep it interesting.

After your run, you can return to enjoy use of the public campground’s nice picnic table areas for an early dinner and campfire in designated fireplaces. Bring your own food or grab take-out or sandwiches along the way.

Main Stream Canoes and Kayaks makes it easy for everyone – book your trip, arrive at our base store, get fitted with a life jacket and paddle, receive instruction if you need it, and we take you and your water craft to your starting point!
