River Description

Scout this one well before putting on.  Solid Class 4 with some 5 moves all along the lower portion of the creek before it dumps into the Hudson.

Accessible from Route 37/ Fourteenth Road which can be found by heading south from Minerva on 28N. Alternately you can paddle accross the Hudson from Whitewater Challengers and walk up the creek on 14th. This way you only need one car and you have a chance to scout everything.

A great idea would be to run this and Balm of Gilead Brook on the same day. They enter the Hudson opposite eachother.
