River Description

As far as I know, no one's run this yet. I'm posting info on it mostly because someone posted some photos of this creek and there was no description of if up yet.

Google Earth and searches of waterfall photo galleries online suggest that this run has some good/BIG drops on it. The take-out might be a little tricky. Trespassing on Wanaque Res. property and/or paddling on Wanaque Res. are forbidden and stictly enforced. Have an exit plan ready which allows you to get out before the fence.

There seems to be an old diversion dam and pond which sends water southeast to another small lake. It might be possible to run that or hike along it to get out.

Gage Descriptions

Use the gauge on West Book at Wanaque. No one has run this yet, so this is a guess, but here goes. I woul guess that 800 and rising on West Brook might correlate to runnable on Posts.
