Description: The Winooski is wide in this section with a number of fairly straight stretches. In August and September, the river can be quite shallow requiring skill in seeking good travel channels.
Rapids/Obstacles: Occasional boulders and underwater rocks require paddlers to stay alert. In addition, two short ledges require basic skill to navigate. The first is at Cemetery Corner, shortly after the High School put in. In the summer, start left and move right to avoid the ledge. The other is just below Jones Brook entrance on the left. The ledge is most passable on the far right, but can have a steep drop. It is easily portaged on the left side.
