This eTrail includes two sections of Connecticut's Housatonic River: Falls Village to Housatonic Meadows State Forest and Bulls Bridge to Route 7. Tucked away in the northwest corner of Connecticut, the Housatonic is set in the quaint hill towns that are built on the eastern slopes of the Taconics. The drops below the covered bridge—the Flume, S-Turn, and Pencil Sharpener—are Class IV, while those upstream of the bridge—Stairway to Hell and Threshold—are solid class V. For the ultra-insane, Dead Horse Falls, on a side channel, is a dangerous class VI with only a few runs logged to date (one paddler broke several bones). The ledgy riverbed causes powerful holes to form at most water levels, and several of the drops are large, with Threshold leading the group at 30 feet plus, followed by Stairway to Hell at about 20 feet overall; the Flume falls 7 feet in a single plunge. The scenery is nothing to sneeze at either.
