    map further down the page so you won’t get lost. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. The beauty of the Green Mountains is a great plus
for this river. This is a pretty decent length section, good for a one day paddling trip. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Colebrook section is one of them.

to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.
