A short and easy paddle on the Connecticut River leads to an idyllic island complete with camping, a rope swing, and great wildlife viewing. The mighty Connecticut River flows 410 miles from its headwaters near the Canadian border, along the border of New Hampshire and Vermont, through Massachusetts and Connecticut, and eventually into Long Island Sound. In the Upper Valley, the river is serene, flat, and dotted with campsites, making this section perfect for families.
