Vermont whitewater, Clarendon River

Rutland county, Clarendon Springs to West Rutland section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     3 miles
  The wonderful Rutland County scenery and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This stretch of Clarendon River in Vermont is 3 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-III section. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good spots for that around here. The average Vermont whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to
    be a bit easier to master than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. This is a pretty short section so better bring some good
walking shoes. The river winds through the Green Mountains and you get great scenery. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The put-in location is a short drive from Rutland, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. If you'll be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river,  
but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near.

Briefly about the general area:
If you like skiing, you're in luck; Pico Mountain is near Clarendon River, and Center Rutland Falls is always fun to check out. All the outdoors amusing stuff in the Green Mountains will keep you coming back many times. Green Mountain National Forest is worth visiting if you're at Clarendon River; if you're here you will meet lots of folks from close by Center Rutland. This river has it all.
