3. Cable Car (immediately follows blue ridge falls)

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.

Paddlers on the Lehigh River below the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir are concerned that a planned study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partners, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will lead to a reduction in whitewater boating opportunities on the Lehigh. The study will evaluate the feasibility of various alternatives to optimize project operation. Aside from the project's authorized primary missions of flood risk management and recreation, the study will also consider water supply and water quality, to identify possible improvements to the existing structure, infrastructure, and operations that will support current and future demands within the region. The Army Corps is holding a public meeting on January 9, 2020 at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, PA from 6-8 p.m. to explain the study and hear public comments. American Whitewater, Appalachian Mountain Club, and other organizations are expected to file comments with the Army Corps prior to the September 29th deadline in order to share our concerns about the study and potential impacts on boating, the outdoor recreation economy, and the Delaware RIver Basin. We encourage our members to attend the public meeting to voice their concerns.
2010 marked the 25th anniversary of protecting the Black and Moose rivers! View an online video documentary on the Moose River and the early role that American Whitewater played in protecting this amazing river.
