In Lowell, rafters brave springtime rapids on Concord River

Lowell is not exactly synonymous with white-water rafting but every spring, the Concord River swells enough to carry thrill seekers over a series of rapids running past the city’s better known historic mills and canals. The twice-daily weekend trips are run by Charlemont-based Zoar Outdoor in conjunction with the nonprofit Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust. “This is one of the only urban white-water experiences out there and it’s only like this a short time of the year. The water eventually recedes back to almost creek-like conditions. Once the leaves start coming back on the trees, that drains off the water,” said Adriana Isaza, a Zoar rafting guide.
