Chandler Brook & Runaround Pond

thumbnail of ChandlerBrook_smallChandler Brook is the Middle Branch of the Royal River. It can be explored in sections or all at once. There’s something for everyone here: peaceful flatwater, fun whitewater, or true adventure navigating nearly impassable stretches of water. Chandler Brook can be paddled at high water levels (in the spring or after significant rain) with the exception of a few short flatwater sections that visitors will have to portage around. We have divided this paddling route into four sections. Visitors can also enjoy paddling Runaround Pond from the same boat launch at Runaround Pond Park.
