Winooski river to Charlie’s Boat House (Macray farm 4.5 miles/2.5 hour, Ethan Allen homestead 7 miles/4 hour). These two drop off points on the Winooski river vary solely in length. The river is wide with a mild current depending on the time of year and the weather. The shade will be found along the river’s shore line where big trees cast large shadows over the river. This setting is home to numerous variety of birds, fish and wild life. As one nears Lake Champlain houses begin to appear on the river bank until it fully opens up into Lake Champlain with it’s breath taking Adirondack views.
