Appalachian Waters, W. Burmeiste
Lat/longitude coords are approximate, from TopoZone.
Minimum flow by most standards is around 180. Most will find it too scratchy below 220 but since it holds well you might be tempted. There is now an ok but short portage around the main street (middle) damn thru a gate on river right about 30' above the damn. Scout on the shuttle and of course treat with respect as at high levels this is a true killer lowhead. Kamikazee Ken died at 1500 and if you see it at anything close it's easy to see why...both sides recirc back. 3rd dam has pipes at the bottom but is easily portaged. Fun class 2 run very similar to Mongaup in difficulty.
