Is This Map too Slow?

This mapping system can be very slow in older web browsers. If this page is not working well for you try not using the water trails button or try the previous version of the mapper. That mapper does not show the water trails, so for information on water trails see the water trails page.

We now show water trails on the ExploreRI mapper!

Pick what you want to see by clicking on the buttons below.

To get more information click on any of the icons that then appear on the map.

*Only some dams are shown, usually those more likely to be of interest to paddlers. Clicking on the dam icons will show the name and height of the dam (where available). The height is measured from the lowest point in the original stream bed to the lowest point on the crest of the dam. Dam heights are not available for dams in Massachusetts.
