River Description

The Riparius to the Glen section of the Hudson River is a wide open and mature piece of the Hudson River.
Once you see a small bridge on river right with Mill creek flowing under it be prepared for the Z ledges rapid.
The rapid is entered left of center and followed up with a "Z" move around pour overs.
In high water avoid the pour over on river right.
After several other rapids you will notice a large rock island in the center of the river. Take the narrower channel on river right to set up for a good surfing wave. Just above the Route 28 bridge is another good surfing wave on river left about 60 yards upstream.
One last rapid remains about a quarter of a mile below the bridge with a sneak route on river left.
Take out is river right with a short walk through the tick infested woods of poison ivy.

Rapid Descriptions


Gage Descriptions

This section can be run at 3.5 but tends to be a bit bony. Above 7 feet it becomes very pushy with some significant pour overs and hydralics. The gauge is up stream about 8 miles at North Creek. It is also about 25 miles from the beginning of the upper gorge so any bubble that resulted from the dam release on the Indian will be somewhate insignificant.
