River Description


Scouted but not completely run.  A gorge forms as the creek heads to the Hudson that is reportedly full of large drops with shallow landings. May be runnable at higher flows, but scouting and portaging may not be possible except from the rim.

 

More information from RiverFacts:

"There are some good sections to paddle in this river system, the Deans Mill to Hudson River section is one of them. If you're coming from
    Hudson it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near.
This is a pretty decent length section, it's perfect for a one day trip. The Catskill Mountains scenery is wonderful. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large number of good places. This stretch of Hannacrois Creek is 5.5 miles long and has been rated as a class III-IV section by American Whitewater. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. "
