“rock”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I walked around the backside where tourists don't go. There is a rock with an engraving on it. You can sit on the rock , lean over, read the inscription and fall in. Oh, and watch the canoes capsize!

“Several options”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Best boat put-in is the Concord River bridge, just upstream from the Old North Bridge, and jsut downstream from Egg Rock. Try the northerly fork (toward the Assabet) which parallels Lowell Road and then turns to shadow Barrett's Mill Road. The southerly branch takes you under several attractive bridges, and to the canoe/kayak rental shop by the South bridge.
