Description

The Deerfield River in the north western part of Massachusetts would be a great country getaway for any group or family. On this particular river there are a lot of bird watching opportunities including species of red tail hawks, blue herons, ospreys, and bald eagles. There are also opportunities to see some active beavers and do some trout fishing.

The second segment of the Deerfield River is the Monroe Bridge Dryway. This segment of the river is the most difficult with its class III and IV rapids. They advise anyone who chooses this 3 mile segment to be very comfortable around water. If you do choose this segment you are in for a great ride full of exciting rapids such as the Dragon’s Tooth, Factory Rapid, and the Labyrinth. This segment gets 1000 cfs (cubic feet per second) of rushing water and thirty-two release dates throughout the season making it a formidable river with rocks, holes, and large waves to bulldoze through. Plus, along the rafting trip there are great views of the northern Berkshire Mountains. Even if you are new to rafting this is a great section of river to try out and bring friends along with as long as they’re 14 years or older.
