Castleton, Vermont, US
|Usual Difficulty||III (for normal flows)|
When you cross over a small bridge going into Fair Haven on 22A you can see a old dam to your left. This old dam is broken and there is a slot on river left. The slot is about five feet wide. Let me clear this up right now you are not going over the dam there is no hole behind the dam at normal levels. This was a dam build on top of a drop back in the day which has become broken. This is a short little rapid which is on the way to the Poultney River. We like to call this rapid Pumpkin Falls. I will be adding video and pictures to this river very soon...
There is another dam above this one but does not look safe to run. This dam is a low head dam with a break on river right. Then it drops onto a rock/concrete ledge about 5 feet down and then down another 5 foot ish drop.
I want to explore this river more and see if it has any hidden treasures that I can bring to life on AW. I will keep you posted.
