There are several drops on this run which deserve notice. First, under the bridge in the town of Saxtons River is a drop worth scouting--pushing class 4-5 when the river is up. Then, entering Bellows Falls, the river takes some BIG drops through Twin Falls, visible from Gage Road. Reminiscent of the big three on the Green--these are twenty-plus-footers, definitely class 5+, local fisherman told me 13 people have died there in diving accidents. Do not know if they have been run in a kayak, assume they have been. The owner has posted the %&$# out of it.
