2. Pristine Beauty of Housatonic State Forest

Your excursion starts off with a big burst of excitement as your canoe plunges through a series of foaming Class II rapids immediately after put-in.

For the next four miles, the river runs broad and flat through the pristine beauty of the Housatonic State Forest, which offers dozens of tree shaded picnic sites in secluded clearings.

The river picks up the pace as you pass old stone bridge abutments and begin to navigate in moving quickwater.
