This guide includes three sections of New Hampshire's Ashuelot River: Lower Stillwater to Gilsum Gorge, Gilsum Gorge to Shaws Corner, and Ashuelot to Hinsdale. The Ashuelot has its origin in several lakes to the north of Marlow, New Hampshire; it flows generally southeastward to meet the Connecticut below Hinsdale. Along most of its course the Ashuelot is flat, although two sections do offer good whitewater challenges and another is an appropriate training ground for beginners. The upper Ashuelot (trip A) is small and requires precise boat control in maneuvering through the many rock patterns.
