Section 3

This section is characterized by varied river travel (often challenging), passing through some ponds on the upper stretch and dropping through rapids to the Lake. The flora and fauna change as the elevation drops and the landscape changes. The river was used for travel and fishing by Mohawk, Abenaki and Algonquin before arrival of European settlers, and then industrial uses came in: remains of dams, a sawmill, an iron forge give evidence of this past.
