Mill River, Vermont, US
|Usual Difficulty||II-III (for normal flows)|
10/30/03 - 1' on the gauge under the rt. 103 bridge in Cuttingsville, river right.
(estimated; gauge goes from 4' - 8'). Another "gauge" is the high RR trestle
north of E. Wallingford, river left....water was washing over the footing, but not quite up to
the stonework. I ran the 4 miles from just upstream of E. Wallingford down to the bridge a mile
downstream of Cuttingsville. First 3 miles were continuous class 2 mixed with lots of bouldery,
technical class 3 rapids. Last mile was mostly class 2. The biggest drop is probably the one
under the high trestle. Good surfing at the ledges a couple hundred yards above the Cuttingsville
bridge. This was good level, but I wouldn't want to run it much lower....it got boney
anywhere the riverbed widened out. Another 6" of water would be perfect.
Note: Original listing had take-out as 43.509 -72.975, which is quite a few miles west. Modified it to be same as put-in for lower section which seemed more logical.Please send email to the Streamkeepers if you have more info. - 11/8/17 Streamkeeper
