Once a natural falls over bedrock, the “falls” is now formed by a dam across the Missisquoi River. Nonetheless, the falls are the jewel of Enosburg — the picturesque symbol of village and namesake of the local high school. Enjoyed by generations of anglers and photographers, this public access came to a screeching halt when the landowner put up no trespassing signs, cutting people off from this beloved stretch of the Missisquoi River. Vermont River Conservancy stepped in and bought the land in 2012 and, in a unique partnership with Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity, we carved off two small lots for affordable homes. A win-win all around, this project provided homes for two local families and made sure people would always be able to enjoy the stunning view of Enosburg Falls.
When visiting this 7-acre riverside park, anglers will enjoy access to the remaining bedrock pools below the falls, where cool waters host smallmouth bass and trophy trout. Paddlers can access the river to begin a float on the Missisquoi or, when coming from upriver as part of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, this protected area makes it possible to portage around the dam.
