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. COPY and PASTE to browser Check Here or here: please update with photos reports or guage info. THANK YOU

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.
