River Description

The upper 3.5 miles is a  beautiful, class II section of Glen Creek which runs right alongside Glen Creek Road. Check for wood as you drive along the road. When the creek moves away from the road in the lower 1/2 mile, get ready for some major steep creeking. Nicknamed 'Hells Bells', this 240 fpm section is narrow, twisting, and high velocity. Prior scouting for wood is highly advisible; this is best done by walking up from route 28 on river left to the former bridge site, and walking down from Glen Creek road on river right to the same bridge site.

Rapid Descriptions


Gage Descriptions

There is no gauge for this creek. The best is to evaluate it by sight from the route 28 bridge. The next best is to evaluate the Hudson river gauge as above. However, the minimum number is merely approx.

Directions Description

Drive about 8 miles north of Warrensburg,NY on Route 28. Turn right on Friends Lake Road just before the Hudson River bridge to reach the take-out for the complete Glen Creek run. Go 1/10 mile and park on the left. The take-out is beside an awesome surfing wave! To reach Glen Creek, continue north on Route 28 for 1/4 mile  and turn left on Glen Creek Road just before the bridge over Glen Creek. Drive about 1/2 mile until you come to Glen Creek; this is the take-out for the upper class II section / put-in for the lower IV section (small parking area). Continue up the road for about another 3.5 miles until the creek pulls away from the road; this is the upper put-in.
