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.

Paddlers on the Lehigh River below the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir are concerned that a planned study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partners, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will lead to a reduction in whitewater boating opportunities on the Lehigh. The study will evaluate the feasibility of various alternatives to optimize project operation. Aside from the project's authorized primary missions of flood risk management and recreation, the study will also consider water supply and water quality, to identify possible improvements to the existing structure, infrastructure, and operations that will support current and future demands within the region. The Army Corps is holding a public meeting on January 9, 2020 at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, PA from 6-8 p.m. to explain the study and hear public comments. American Whitewater, Appalachian Mountain Club, and other organizations are expected to file comments with the Army Corps prior to the September 29th deadline in order to share our concerns about the study and potential impacts on boating, the outdoor recreation economy, and the Delaware RIver Basin. We encourage our members to attend the public meeting to voice their concerns.
