An easy 10 ¼ mile paddle from Clinton to Darts Mills with a few riffles that vary with water levels. In early June, the stream meanders through fields and woods covered with wild roses. There are a few gravel shoals that will require a walk if you should get caught up on them and there is a short carry around or over a low dam at Hamden. At the end of the trip, there is a dam at Darts Mills which may be portaged; but with water level today, there was no need. Just having fun with the music at the end .We started the trip a short distance below the landmark Red Mill built about 1812 to process wool. On this trip 2 eagles, many Heron and other birds were spotted along with a Beaver sitting on a fallen tree. We stopped at the Hamden Pumping Station, which supplies water to Round Valley Reservoir and used the top of the dam for seats. (Sorry no pictures playing at the outflow) rather than the field river right.
