Little, Vermont, US
Waterbury Reservoir to Winooski River
||I(III) (for normal flows)
This is a dam controlled river. It is currently under FERC relicensing procedure. The put in is at
the gate to the power house or at the power house itself. There are a few good eddy lines for
playing on this portion of the run. After passing under the bridge be prepared to portage 100 yds
down on the right. Beyond this is an unrunnable drop. Leave plenty of space because the eddies are
few and the banks are overgrown with brush. The drop can be recognized by the cable and cart
stretching across the river at the entrance to the gorge.
100 yds below the gorge look for a cut in the wall on the left. Its a good put in if you want to
play the waves, otherwise put in at the eddy below the gorge. The river will continue with no major
hazards to the take out.
From Waterbury take Rt 2 West for 2 miles. The Little River road is the first right hand turn
passing under the interstate. Take the first right on Little River Rd. Parking for the take out is
just across the old bridge. This is a private rd. Please don't block it.
The put in is about 2 miles farther up Little River Rd. towards the state campground. Scout the
river on the way up. Check out the gorge.
