An interesting and enjoyable paddle. The launch for Keech Pond is at the end of Indian Trail in Chepachet (Glocester), RI. Keech Pond is a 129-acre pond that is state managed. Motors over 10 HP are not allowed, so motor boat traffic is not a problem. One-third of the trip on the pond is private, wooded land. The rest of the trip goes by waterfront homes. You can explore the various coves on this pond. Keech Pond connects to the 186-acre Smith & Sayles Reservoir by a low dam. You could pick up your boat and do the easy portage over the dame to enter the larger Smith & Sayles Reservoir if you wanted a longer trip.
