The Deerfield is a 76-mile river that starts in VT and runs to CT. It descends 1,100 feet over 50 miles with enough force that it’s controlled by 7 dams along the way to allow for everything from power generation, to trout fishing and of course, whitewater rafting and kayaking. The section we're visiting is the closest class I through IV rapids near NYC. You’re welcome. This trip is rated training. Lunch is included. Transportation is available.
