2. Blue Ridge Falls (visible from the vista pull-off)
3. Cable Car (immediately follows blue ridge falls)
4. Mesh Fence
5. Snarly (empties into Palmer Pond)
The most identifiable and classic drop on this run. Spectators welcome. A hard left hand turn brings you to an impressive horizon line. Its better if you scout this one on the drive up, from the pull-off and hike down the trail to take a good look. Traditionally starting high and right, and making an easy hairy-ferry type move part-way down to get over to the left side to setup for the 8 footer at the bottom. Below that drop begins Cable Car, a short but fun set of manegeable waves/holes with a nice eddy and the bottom for high-fives.
The gauge is a correlation with the Schroon River only, as this river eventually feeds into the upper reaches of the Schroon.
Permits are not required for this reach.
