Rocky Narrows is both land and Charles River. We usually go by river since it is a lovely trip that is easily accessible. You can put in about one mile upstream at the Route 27 Medfield section of the Charles River and follow downstream. You will know the narrows the begin by the granite cliffs to your left just after you go under a railroad bridge. There is good fishing in this area for largemouth bass, perch, pickerel, and even some carp.

Spring can see high water and some rapid current but nothing dangerous. Summer can get quite low in some spots. There are a couple of obvious places to pull out for a picnic and you really feel like you are away from it all even though you are only a mile or so from some very populated areas.

In the Narrows area you can hike off to the left side of the river for the main Narrows land or off to the right side of the river on the lands of the now closed Medfield State Hospital. I enjoy June the best with good water levels, flowers in bloom, fish, and waterfowl. A couple of miles upstream is a big area for Great Blue Herons and it is common to see them sitting on the side of the river or fly up or down stream with their huge wingspan and annoyed squawk.
