Housatonic River Brookside Road to Old Covered Bridge

Housatonic River: Brookside Road to Old Covered Bridge Professional Review and Guide

"A great float through riparian forest, along farm fields, and past the poet’s river. South of Brookside Road, the Housatonic River begins to wander into an area called the Sheffield Flats. With mountains to the east and a wide valley floor to the west, the river flows through thick riparian forest and open sunny farm fields.

Though the sounds and sights of civilization are never distant, this section of river nevertheless feels remote and private. This is especially true near the confluence of the Green River where a Native American village, an esteemed poet, and nature combine to create a very special place indeed."
