We were on our way from Concord NH to Montpelier and stopped at this area. It was not easy to find since no signs suggested you find this place. Very nice stay for 15 or so minutes and then you can move on. The rock...More

The river has made cool designs in the rocks as it passes by. There are several smaller versions of carving like the more famous Basin up in the Notch. The majority of the people just come to jump in the refreshing river water on a...More
