    rafting and kayaking in this state is often easier than elsewhere, so better not forget that many runs in this state are very easy. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this is an area
with plenty of places for that. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Rutland, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. This section is long  
enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, suitable for an afternoon trip.

Briefly about the general area:
The slopes of Pico Mountain are so inviting noone can resist, and there's delightful hiking along the Homer Stone Trail. You just have to have a thing about the Green Mountains. Clarendon Gorge is a glorious location to pop by close to Mill River, and pleasant hiking is available along the Keewaydin Trail. A river like this is too good to miss. When you're here at Mill River it's always fun to check out Green Mountain National Forest, and at Mill River you always meet someone from North Clarendon.
