Directions are incorrect!

The directions to the Gilman Boat Launch are incorrect. [The 'Cozy Nook' directions indeed lead to a river access point, but to go beyond the second graveyard is unpassable for most vehicles; paddlers could carry a boat about 50 yards down to the river.] The GPS coordinates are for the actual TransCanada Picnic Area and Boat Launch, which is located at the end of Walker Pit Road. To reach this road, head south from Gilman for about a mile and bear left on Walker Pit Road instead of heading for East Concord.

The Site Description is a good description of the Walker Pit Road boat launch.
