Ever since John Ledyard dropped out of Dartmouth College in 1772 and paddled the Connecticut River with a dugout canoe of his own making, paddlers have been taking what is one of New England’s iconic journeys.
Yet, despite being one of New England’s epic trips, there is not a fully developed trail with access points and camping locations for the whole length of the river. And there should be.
CRC is working with many partners, including the Vermont Rivers Conservancy & Appalachian Mountain Club to expand the Connecticut River Paddlers’ Trail from its existing locations in Vermont and New Hampshire to the entire length of the river.
