    River Description

    The Monroe Bridge section is rated Class IV, and the Fife Brook (Zoar Gap) section is rated Class II. The AMC Boston Chapter runs trips to the Deerfield. Some information about the area is on the AWA's Deerfield River Festival page. Zoar Outdoors have an excellent web system with a good river description and release schedule.

    This information is my opinion only  
    and may not reflect actual conditions. 
    It is based on my usually hazy memory, 
    and should not be used to decide whether 
    you or your guides are qualified to run the river.
