This section crosses Lake Memphremagog (beginning in Québec) and follows the Clyde and Nulhegan Rivers to the Connecticut River. The Northeast Kingdom is a high, cold, corner of Vermont whose granite hills remain sparsely settled. The Clyde River wetlands support rare natural communities, where paddlers might hear the courtship calls of pied-billed grebes or catch glimpses of northern harriers among the sedge and bog willow. Vermont’s most wild river, the Nulhegan River drops through a basin of thick forests and boreal wetlands (home to Vermont’s largest population of moose and largest deeryard) and protected through the Nulhegan Basin Division of the Silvio O.Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge.
