I'm working on planning a 6-7 day trip down the Connecticut rive with a group of semi-experienced paddlers.
Ideally we would like to travel anywhere from 35-50 miles with a 2 day camping break in the middle of the trip (near a waterfall or nice campsite.)
Typically my group has around 5 canoes, 10 people and 3-5 dogs, we've gone on 6 week-long paddling adventures around the Buffalo and Adirondack regions and are looking for something new!
We will be traveling from the Buffalo NY area so parking is a big deal.
We have blocked out August 10-17 for when were going and I could use some suggestions!
So, I'm looking for advise on which section to paddle (i.e.) what part of the river is active, navigable in mid-August, and preferably has minimal portages.
Any advice you could give me would be much appreciated!
