North Adams, MA (#2) to Lauren’s Launch, Williamstown, MA (#3)
#4 Access: The Ashton Avenue access area is just east of the Williamstown/North Adams line, off MA Rt. 2. Signs on Route 2 indicate access area to the north.
Highlights of this stretch include occasionally deep and swift water, the Green River entering on the left one mile from Ashton Avenue, and great views over one’s shoulder of Mount Greylock and the Green Mountains. Shortly after passing under the US Route 7 bridge in Williamstown, look for a informal landing (Lauren’s Launch, named after HooRWA founding member Lauren Stevens), developed by HooRWA.
