Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


One of the first areas from the Stowe side with two main flows. On the west side of the road.

Getting There 

Cut left off the road (from the Stowe side) before you reach the bridge/guardrail (Cambridge/Stowe line). Cut into the woods and locate a small gully/stream that comes down from this area. Once you're about 50-100yds in the woods, look up and you'll see the flows. Pick the easiest line to get where you want to go; a small snow gully leads to each Ampitheater.
