Like many other semi-urban rivers this short run can have poor water quality at times.
Coneross Hydropark is essentially a small series of slanted waterfalls and ledges. The run is
entirely a Âdestination boatingÂ experience. Boaters must put in at the base of the dam or
slightly downstream of the dam depending on the water level and if the dam is releasing water or
spilling over. The rapids are river wide and multiple lines are possible. Most drops are easy class
III but the final drop on river right is more difficult. This narrow slot drop can pin boaters. The
takeout is downstream below the hydroplant. Boaters do not need to run shuttle and it is fairly
simple to walk up the concrete flume to the top of the run.
