Description: A steady current flows through this section of the river, which is mostly flat. Shortly after Waterbury you will pass the Little River as it enters the Winooski. This stretch of the river passes through the Green Mountains, offering breathtaking views of both the Green Mountain Range and the Worcester Range. Camelís Hump will be visible on the left.
Rapids/Obstacles: None although paddlers should always watch for barely submerged rocks and woody debris.

Pictures taken July 2013.
I walked along the river edge of this field and can not find a clear path to the Winooski River.

Looking downstream at the Winooski River from the Winooski Street bridge in Waterbury VT. An informal and suitable put in is on the left northwest of bridge.
At River Road on the northwest of Winooski Street bridge is a small patch of access to Winooski River.

The Bolton Dam at Power Plant Road in Waterbury VT.
At the right of this picture is the portage path to the take out above the dam.
Canoe portage sign.
The portage path is long and on a hilly terrain.
Even just plain walking without portaging a kayak, the path to the take out above the dam is too much for me.
I turned around and never got to the take out above the dam.
