The category II Old Route 2 to covered bridge at Highway 16 segment of Salmon River is 4.6 miles long. Do depend on staying dry paddling this part of Salmon River. On Roaring Brook River nearby you locate the 3-mile-in-distance Cold Brook Road to Route 17 section of category III-IV whitewater. This bit of Roaring Brook River is suited for whitewater boaters who have been kayak paddling for a period of
time but who are not yet set for the incredibly perilous rapids. Unsurprisingly, kayak paddling is cool but perilous; check conditions in advance of a trip.
