Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. Getting a good workout and just being out
    on the river for a while will make you glad you came. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the Right above Route 4 to 1 Mile below Route 4 stretch is one of them. There are many good hotels to choose
from, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The average Vermont whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master than those in other states, so better not forget that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. This is a very short section so better bring some good walking shoes. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Whitewater paddling here  
in the Green Mountains is a great experience. The nature scenery of Windsor County and the water flowing gracefully down Ottauquechee River attract people from near and far.

Briefly about the general area:
Ottauquechee River is not far at all from Quechee; why not take a refreshing hike along the Mount Peg Foot and Bridal Trails. And that's not everything there is to do here in the Green Mountains. Hit the slopes at Suicide Six around here, and Ascutney State Park is a delightful location any time of year. At this river you will always have a good time. Take a hike on the Futures Trail, and Quechee State Park is a pleasant location to stretch your legs a bit.
