Sandy River, Phillips to Farmington

This section of the Sandy River provides spectacular views of boulders, rock-strewn shores, and high banks sheltering cliff swallows. Beginning in Phillips well below the bridge, the river passes through Avon and Strong before arriving at Farmington. It is populated with many class I and II rapids, and has frequent shallows, especially at low water levels.  See other canoe trips.
