Whether you’re looking for a place to paddle, tube, splash with kids, or let your dog stretch its legs, this is a great place to access the Winooski River. Just off of Route 2 in central Vermont, just below where the Mad River flows into the Winooski River, this property includes a short walking path through a hayed field, a seasonal wetland, and 1,000 feet of frontage on the Winooski River. Though the bank here is steep, a short path leads to the river’s edge where visitors can launch a boat, or enjoy a sunny afternoon splash.
Years ago, this site was owned by Mooretown resident Jonathan Larsen. Instead of developing the land, he donated it to Vermont River Conservancy. Thanks to his vision and generosity, visitors will always be able to come here to enjoy the Winooski River.

Located on Route 2, just west of the new bridge over the Winooski River (west of the state highway garage), the access includes a curb cut, parking spaces and a loop to get closer to the river to drop boats.
