River Description


If the last drop looks good then you have enough water for the run. Hike up the trail on the left side of the creek for 1.75 miles then head to the river. If it is flat then you've gone far enough. If the creek is really high an extra half mile walk will bring you to the hardest drop on the run.

The entire run is solid Class 4 creeking from the putin on down. Expect slides aand boofs throughout. Enjoy, but keep an eye out for strainers.

According to Adrian Vanden Bout, this run requires an hour-long, two-mile hike in from the road--but it's worth it. It often collects wood; scout from the trail.

sorry Matt, but i've gotta add here. its not 2 miles but 1.50 - 1.75. the other creek we ran that day may have been 2 miles (E. Branch Sacandaga, the Square Falls section). Adrian

Gage Descriptions

Sacondaga should be above 3500 or should have jumped 1500 in a day for this to run. If the last drop looks good you should have plenty of water.

Directions Description


The Takeout bridge is located 9.8 Miles north of Wells, or 16.1 Miles south of Johnsburgh. The bridge is just southwest of the sign indicating the county line.

Hike up on the left for 1.75 miles to the Putin

Army Corps Study Threatens Lehigh River Boating

1/3/2020
Bob Nasdor

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.
