The tubing trip ----In a canyon - Bardwell's Ferry Bridge  to Stillwater bridge -- 3.5 miles of Pristine river 

 Just you, the river and your friends on 3.5 miles of lazy river in a gorge- 4 mild rapids, several deep holes, a fisherman or two, no release time, no noise, not a lot of people, no houses, some cliffs and maybe some rope swings and maybe a bald eagle or two.

Directions and Address for GPS users -

Meetup/ pickup location is  presently being negotiated.  

3.5 miles of pristine, undeveloped, natural river.  2 hours west of Boston Massachusetts, and 1.5 hours north of Hardford, Connecticut. The Deerfield River is a true gem. River tubing down the river is a great way to enjoy it.  There is no development along this part  of the river so there are opportunities to view pristine forest and wildlife.
