Explore the geologic history of the area on this popular 90-minute cruise down river about six miles to Barton Cove before returning to Northfield. You will learn about the 100-foot-deep holes found in the river bed as well as other striking features such as flood plains, terraces, abandoned waterfalls and other evidence of the glacial era of Lake Hitchcock. You will also be cruising along the “Age of Dinosaurs” fault that formed as Pangaea began to break apart into separate continents.Meet promptly at Northfield Mountain Riverview Dock
