Access Point: Fore River Launch, Braintree/Weymouth, MA
January 28, 2015
New England Boating reader and avid kayaker Robert Kearns alerted us to a great launch area for kayakers, canoeists, rowers and paddleboarders interested in exploring the tidal Fore River in Weymouth, Massachusetts, which leads to Quincy Bay.
The launch site is located off Commercial Street in Braintree, across from the Commuter Rail station. It is a concrete ramp with enough room to back down a small trailer. Parking for roughly 10 vehicles is available in the adjacent dirt lot. There is no fee to launch and park.
The MA Dept. of Fish & Game’s Office of Fishing and Boating Access (FBA) completed reconstruction of the Fore River Canoe Access in June, 2013. The $90,000 project was paid for with state environmental bond funds.
