Canoeing & Kayaking in Vermont

Specific Areas

wild irisLake Champlain Paddlers' Trail
Launched in 1996, the Lake Champlain Paddlers' Trail links access sites and camping along the New York, Quebec and Vermont shorelines that surround the lake. As of 2001, there were 27 campsites, all of which are open to anyone who buys the annual guidebook and stewardship manual ($40, last we checked). If you stop by the Website you'll find a history section and a list of trail use rules.

US Army Corp of Engineers - Vermont
These folks maintain a series of sites in Vermont that are excellent places to boat, fish, swim and picnic (not to mention check out some great dams). This site also links to US Army Corp of Engineers areas in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

International Scale of River Difficulty
Stop in here to see what the six difficulty classes mentioned above actually mean.

Connecticut River Recreation
Making up Vermont's border with New Hampshire, the Connecticut River is easily the longest river in the state and offers a wealth of boating opportunities of all kinds. The Connecticut River Recreation page covers those opportunities very well with an information-packed site offering boating maps, safety tips and warnings on harmful elements like zebra muscles and milfoil. They also point to resources such as primitive campsites and birding sites.

Northern Forest Canoe Trail
Have eight weeks vacation coming up and looking for something to do? Try the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. This 740 mile trail is actually a network of rivers and other waterways that were originally used by Native Americans and early Europeans. The trail runs through New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine and includes a variety of water (flatwater, whitewater, poling) as well as portaging. The Website features history, a FAQ, news and information on how you can become a member and receive a variety of maps and detailed descriptions.

Vermont Swimming Holes
You can't always glide on the water… sometimes you have to jump into it. Vermont Swimming Holes offers up a very large map with pointers to 69 swimming holes on it. Holes have extensive descriptions, information on activities that surround them and, of course, directions.

Waterfalls of Vermont
Unless you're training for an X-sport, you really can't kayak them, and yet knowing when one is just around the next bend is a good thing. Waterfalls of Vermont has information on all(?) the state's falls, including pictures, statistics, a "beauty" meter and detailed descriptions and directions. Whether you're starting/stopping at or portaging around a waterfall, it really adds a special touch to a boating trip.
