Creek VT Milton Falls Vermont Whitewater Kayaking

Welcome to the Creek VT guide to whitewater rivers of Vermont.

This list is not comprehensive.  These are the currently known rivers subjectively decided to be worth noting and documenting by the authors of this site.  Opinions on difficulty and quality are also subjective and will be objected to by more than a few. 


Rivers and rapids change frequently. These river descriptions may contain outdated information and should be used as a general guide only.  If you are unfamiliar with the run, go slow, scout often and set safety.  Better yet, a guide will make the run safer and more fun.  Contact us to be connected with a local paddler. 

New river descriptions will be added over time.  Keep checking back to see the list as it grows.
