We have been paddling the lower half of the run, which still has some of the best whitewater in the state. To access this park at the second pull out on the left side of the road when heading up from the East Middlebury bridge. Walk back down the road 1/4 mile, about 80 yards past the 40mph sign. Dive into the woods and pick your way down the steep bank. It requires lowering boats two different times, but is well worth the effort.
