Missisquoi River Access

Missisquoi River Access

 

Name of Project:     Missisquoi River Access

Location:      Richford         

River:   Missisquoi River

Type of Project: Public Access

Public Access: Yes

Date Completed: July 2017

Size:   .5 acre

Water Frontage: 100 feet

Landowner: Michael Hranek

Funding Partners:  This project was completed in partnership with the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, with support from the Upper Missisquoi and Trout Rivers Committee, the Richford Economic Action Committee, Concept 2, the Vermont Community Foundation, Fields Pond Foundation, Carl Taylor, and ACA/LL Bean and the generous support of local donors.

Property Description: A new community riverside park has been established in the border town of Richford. The 1/2-acre parcel, situated alongside the Missisquoi River, serves as a take-out for paddlers to explore six miles of wild and scenic river upstream, as well as a put-in for Northern Forest Canoe Trail paddlers carrying around the rapids in town on the journey from New York to Maine. A conservation easement protects the ability of the river to flood and move and established a riparian buffer zone, while allowing for the creation of a community gathering space.

Directions: Access to the parcel is possible off Main St in Richford. Park near Overlook Park, across from the town office. Walk through Overlook to the parcel. Alternatively, park near the proposed Rail Trail Extension terminus (near the gas station) and follow the right of way/bike path to the parcel.
