Experience the River

With such an amazing resource in our backyards, we love to encourage people to get out and explore the Winooski River and its tributaries. This section of our website lists various activities and resources for people interested in boating, fishing and exploring the Winooski.

Each June since 2014, Friends of the Winooski River has hosted the Onion River Race and Ramble--a 10-mile paddle down the Winooski from Bolton to Richmond. This full day event culminates with food, music and an award ceremony, and provides a great opportunity to experience the river--and perhaps to get your competitive fix! Visit our race page for more information on this year's race.
