From the South: Head north on Route 1 to Bath, once you cross over the Kennebec via the Bath Bridge turn right down 127/Arrowsic Rd. Drive for about 4.7 miles you will come to a bridge park on the right hand side. There is a pull off hear where you can park and change. Walk down the hill under the bridge and you will see the small island where the eddy line begins to form.

A hardy group of northeast boaters climbed into the natural river channel below a hydropower dam to participate in a flow study designed to assess whether whitewater flows should be restored to this dewatered river reach on the Connecticut River. While significant obstacles remain, this site has the potential for providing instruction, playboating, and a big water feature that that could be run throughout much of the year and provide a much needed boost to the local economy.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
