Passumpsic E Br, Vermont, US
E. Burke dam-Rt. 114 bridge
||II(IV) (for normal flows)
A.J. Seibel shared:
"Put-in @ bean brook road north of East Haven VT and take out just above the dam in East Burke.
This upper section is mostly class I-II with intermittent swift water, a great run for beginners
or a quick afternoon away."

I have paddled the lower section several times, but just last month I paddled below the
bridge in East Burke.
There is a fun technical class II+ drop right at the put in. The river makes a fast right turn but
there is a nasty rock right in the middle of the otherwise smooth tongue of green water. Lots of
eddies that I needed to back into after I nearly broached on that rock. A quick wave train brings
you around the bend to the left to the final drop with a fine surfing wave at the bottom. Although
you are right next to the road, you can neither see nor hear it and you have a nice private little
play hole. The rest of the run to Lyndonville is class I(+) with some real fun ledge drops along
the way. I hear there is more big stuff downstream, But I have never been on it. Mark Lienau
