River Description

The put-in must be in the large eddy below Troy Falls (Class VI). I am assuming that the takeout is at the confluence with the Hudson River. Longitude and latitudes are approximate.

Class: III-VI

Note: The photos posted by Chris Morelli were taken on Wyants Kill south of Troy.

Checking back in, after a few nights of rain, levels went up, i ran the drop below the slide/mill and it was good, watch out for a dangerous pin pothole on the first part of the drop, I went around this pothole but at higher levels it should be good.
