New Hampshire whitewater, Cascade Brook

Grafton county, Lincoln section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS V     0.9 miles
  The nature scenery of New Hampshire and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The average New Hampshire whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so don't forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Berlin, as you can see on the road map further down. This section is very short
    so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. The beautiful White Mountains scenery is an added bonus. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. The Lincoln section of Cascade
Brook in New Hampshire is 0.9 miles long and it is classified as a class V section by American Whitewater. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. There are many good hotels to choose from, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. There are some good sections to paddle  
in this river system, the Lincoln section is one of them.

Briefly about the general area:
Go for a hike on the Basin Cascade Trail, and if you want to pop by some exciting stuff, pop by Indian Head. So much cool stuff in the White Mountains, just tremendous. Don't leave Cascade Brook without first going for a hike along the Cascade Brook Trail. Don't leave Cascade Brook without visiting Franconia Notch State Park; there are plenty of folks from Lincoln here at Cascade Brook. A cool spot to take a look at in the neighborhood of Cascade Brook is Old Man of the Mountain, and you'll never forgive yourself if you donít go skiing at Cannon Mountain while you're here.
