it's perfect for a one day trip. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The scenic beauty of Chittenden County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water beats anything. The Green Mountains scenery is wonderful. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places.

the Jericho stretch is one of them. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.

Briefly about the general area:
Gotta ski! Cochran Ski Center is a wonderful location to do that, and Mill Brook is a site with many visitors from Jericho. Man, is there plenty of entertaining stuff to do in the Green Mountains. Places like Little River State Park are delightful to explore, and the Nose Dive Trail offers hiking at its best. This is such a fun river.
