River Description


The Still River Gorge feeds into the Sandy just below the Sandy takeout. From the Rt. 8 bridge over the Sandy, follow the road that extends from the downstream side of the bridge. Take this road to the first right, about a mile away. This right takes you over the Sandy on a bridge. This is the Still takeout.

Cross this bridge and follow the road to the first left, a 1/4 mile away. This left takes you to
the bridge over the Still River Gorge. Put-in just upstream.

This is a cool section to do after or before doing the Sandy. It's harder than the Sandy though. But it's an easy scout.

Bellows Falls (VT) Flow Study Reveals Hidden Whitewater

6/2/2015
Robert Nasdor

A hardy group of northeast boaters climbed into the natural river channel below a hydropower dam to participate in a flow study designed to assess whether whitewater flows should be restored to this dewatered river reach on the Connecticut River. While significant obstacles remain, this site has the potential for providing instruction, playboating, and a big water feature that that could be run throughout much of the year and provide a much needed boost to the local economy.
