Williams River (Vermont)
The Williams River is a 27.0-mile (43.5 km) river in the U.S. state of Vermont. It is a tributary of the Connecticut River. Its watershed covers 117 square miles; land use is about 80% forested and 4% agricultural, and the upper river supports wild brook trout and brown trout.
The Williams River rises in the northern part of the town of Andover and flows east through a corner of Ludlow and into Chester, where it turns south. Followed by Vermont Route 103, the river flows in a narrow valley between rolling hills into the town of Rockingham, where it joins the Connecticut River.
