Rock, Vermont, US
|Usual Difficulty||II-III (for normal flows)|
This section has been changed completely by Hurricane Irene and the restoration efforts. The river's course was altered by the flood, and it was returned to pretty much its orginal course afterwards through manmade methods. The channel has been deepened and most rocks have moved or been moved, so the rapids are all new. There has been heavy equipment in or near the river since the flood in August of 2011, and I have no reports of this stretch being run as of December 2011.
Those who try to run this should scout it carefully. This section is continuing to take down trees as it solidifies its new pathway, and will be evolving rapidly in the coming months and years.
