Default Stonehouse Pond

My son and I are planning a trip to Stonehouse Pond in Barrington Monday for the first time. I was wondering if I could get a canoe in there and if yes, how long is the carry in?

From the parking area, it's very manageable. Not more than 60 feet. Less if you have a truck that can manage the rocky hill at the launch area.
I've managed launching my 16.5 foot canoe solo.

You don't want to fish there. There's no fish. 😎

I would call that worse than a cormorant. Best part is how all non fisherman love them lol

Loons can be very aggressive. had 2 of them chase me right off Whittemore pond last year while I was float tubing there.

At a pond in the Pittsburg area I had a loon three feet below the surface dart right under my canoe probably chasing a little brookie I had on the the line. That was very cool. They are BIG birds up close. And ravenous.

I've found plenty of fish at Stonehouse and when there were raptors flying around.

Just sayin'.

Easy access, btw.
