We loved this whole area and the kids had fun wading in the cool shallows of the river. Beautiful scenic drives.

Nice covered bridges and wonderful scenery. This is not really an activity but an area to drive through. The nearby Billings Farm, Sugarbush Farm, and the gorgeous village square at Woodstock are also must see areas close by.

This is a long, wide river with small towns and villages along it. I particularly enjoyed visiting and photographing the bridges.

Stopped to see the river on our way to Woodside from White River Junction. It was breathtaking with the Fall foilage along either side of the gorge! As luck would have it a beautiful hot air balloon sailed over the river and gorge, while we were there, which made it a perfect camera moment! Worth the stop.
