Cheshire Reservoir, Adams, MA

Access: Roadside rest area on State Rt. 8 (#1)
Paddle the reservoir from the roadside rest area at the north end of the lake. The shallow, weedy water body is privately owned. By heading south and crossing the causeway, you can explore some 500 acres. Paddling the river just below the dam at the north end (the “jungle”) is not recommended because it is narrow, shallow, and obstructed by branches.
