This is a steep boulder garden style run with several larger drops. I ran it in May of 2011 at around 5.5 on the bridge guage, by the park at the takeout. As was told to me it was "med.-high", at this level. The river rises and falls quickly.
Above 5.5 ft this river gets burly and increases in both difficulty and consequences.
Please note that in the fall of 2011 Hurricane Irene created epic floods in the area, and reprots say the river has changed. However the links below will provide you with some idea of the rivers general character.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
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.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
