River Description

This approximately 20ft waterfall is topped by a V-shaped dam. The dam can be run on river left or down the center on the rooster tail. Below, a bumpy slide feeds into a 6 ft auto-boof.

Oriskany Creek can also be run as a class II-II+ creek run from multiple road accesses, and a 6ft dam can be found downstream of the falls.
