Essex county, East Brighton Bridge to Connecticut River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV     13 miles
  This stretch of Nulhegan River is 13 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class III-IV section of whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Vermont tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that the rivers in this state are less demanding. The East Brighton Bridge to Connecticut River stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system. If
    you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Berlin, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The nearby hotels are a bit away
from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good spots. The beauty of the Green Mountains is a great plus for this river. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so go ahead and pack your camping  
stuff. The natural beauty of Essex County and the water flowing gracefully down Nulhegan River make the trip here worthwhile.

Briefly about the general area:
Maidstone State Park is both good and beautiful, and it's near Nulhegan River, and there's no such thing as a bad day of skiing at close by Burke Mountain. Life's too short to enjoy all the exciting things in the Green Mountains. There are tremendous places to explore along the Main Trail, and Brighton State Park is a good site to go to on a pretty day. This river has it all. Here at Nulhegan River you'll probably meet some people from Guildhall; going for a hike on the Loggers Loop Trail is always a tremendous adventure.
