Pembroke Town Forest

Owned By: Town of Pembroke

33 acres of conservation land owned by the Town of Pembroke. Includes a Canoe/Kayak Launch.

Tide Math: High tide at the Pembroke Town Forest is about 2.5-3 hours after the Boston high tide.


There are no established walking trails here. However, it’s the perfect spot to launch a canoe, kayak or paddleboard. Be sure to make note of your surroundings before you depart. From the water, the landing area is not especially easy to spot. Whether you paddle upstream or downstream, this is a lovely section of the river to explore.

Tide adjustment: add 2.5 to 3 hours to the Boston high tide. So if it’s high tide at Boston at noon, it will be high tide at the Pembroke Town Forest around 2:30 pr 3pm. Be aware that at lower tides, this area can be quite muddy and slippery.
