The other side of Hillfarm Rd. you need to portage the water level at the road is usually to high. On Johnsons the boat traffic is high, so I prefer to stay on the Big River side. If you go left under the road at the ramp, it meanders into the woods - very peaceful.
The river goes under rte 95 and rte 3. 95 is a fairly long tunnel lots of echos for the kids, I think the other parking spot mentioned has been closed in the woods at the 95 tunnel, but at rte 3 you can take out on the side of the road if you plan ahead.
I usually paddle both ways it's really not that far; easily done in half a day. At this point the river gets smaller and smaller winding through the woods over beaver dams and depending on the water level eventually you will need to turn back.
If you're persistent you can go pretty far though. Nice daytrip.
