River Description

A great short run to combine with the Big Branch, or if you are just passing.

It's a short series of slides and small drops. It is over pretty fast, but is well worth it at least once.

Take out before the bridge in Danby (not Rte. 7). Put in up where it doesn't look any more fun.

To find the run, heading south into Danby, take a right (you would have taken a left for the Big Branch). Then take the next right, then left (passing over the river) This is the take out.


Lat/longitude coordinates are a rough SWAG. There's a bridge downstream of the listed takeout; you may want to takeout there. (Scout and explore!)

Northeast Boaters Seek To Expand West River (VT) Boating

Robert Nasdor

In response to of the state’s draft basin plan for southern Vermont, American Whitewater and scores of boaters pressed the state to support the expansion of releases on the West River. Restrictions by the Corps of Engineers and Agency of Natural Resources have led to the elimination of nearly all scheduled boating opportunities on the West River over the past two decades, eliminating recreation opportunity and hurting the local economy. AW and its partners have been working to restore these releases.

Bellows Falls (VT) Flow Study Reveals Hidden Whitewater

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.
