I paddled this at a little over 3'. No features or drops. It would be Class II except for the strainers in the top 4 miles. Very dangerous!

Gertler says the minimum level on the gauge is 1.4 feet. This is not right. I was there with a gauge reading of 2.15 and the creek was very low. The gauge is in a pool behind a 2' weir, and with two inches of water spilling over the lip of the weir registered the 2.15 ft. A couple more inches over the weir would bring the creek to life. Also, the difficulty level seems to be lower than class III, but perhaps a lot more water would bring it up.

There will be a one day conference on January 31st in eastern Pennsylvania that will address dam removal and rehabilitation in the state and region. It is likely that this very affordable conference would be helpful to paddlers interested in working on dam removal projects in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
