Barn Island, Conn., to Napa Tree Point, R.I.
Put in and paddle from the Barn Island boat ramp, at the eastern edge of Connecticut. A detour through the Barn Island Wildlife Management Area can bring encounters with salt marsh wildlife. Or paddle straight out and around Napa Tree Point to the arc of beach jutting out from Watch Hill, Rhode Island. You can surf the swells, and you may need a surf landing on the beach, depending on conditions, Wylie said. Its never crowded.
