The first of two threes on this otherwise Class-I run, this 6-foot double ledge appears after Pope Road. The next III is a ledge drop with a nice hole.The level needs to be high for these two to be worth running.
This is basically a long class I river with a lot of strainers to negotiate. There are basically two rapids in the middle of the run which were already mentioned, class III. The level has to be up too to warrant running them. The water is warm and there is a lot of good wild life to check out.
small, easy rapids from 302 to Pope Rd. After Pope Rd there is a nice class III drop (6 ft double ledge).The next rapid is another ledge drop with a nice hole.Ran on May 5 and there was a lot of wood, but it was worth it for my first class III!

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!
