River Description

Access through Dartmouth College land to the river is somewhat restricted. It is necessary to carry upstream from the take out unless special permission can be obtained. Carry up past the Dead Diamond tributary bridge and put in on the Swift Diamond as far up as you wish to hike. The Swift Diamond is mostly class III until the confluence with the Dead Diamond branch. At this point the river tumbles steeply through a narrow gorge with continous class IV water. Above 1000 cfs the gorge can be continous class IV-V with no let up till close to the takeout.
