Description

My place is quiet and densely forested with thin, young trees. A few paces away are dramatic bedrock features that line the Winooski river. You can hear water softly flowing from my place. Species include Red Oak, Norway Maple, Buckthorn, Basswood and ferns.

Salmon Hole Park is an intersection of nature, culture, and industry. It is an extremely diverse buffer zone to the Winooski river. If you look one way, there are unobstructed views of the river and forested area that make you forget you’re standing 50 feet away from a heavily developed area.

Location

To get to Salmon Hole Park, take East Avenue down to Colchester and make a right. Take a hairpin turn onto Riverside Avenue. The entrance I take is past the bike rack, down a set of wooden stairs.
