River Description

Info from New York Exposed: The Whitewater State, Vol. 2 .

Tight and lots of trees, but the last drop under Route 81 is still a great park and huck if you don't want to run the rest.

 

Jeff Sharpe shared some beta:

I ran this in March of '05. It had numerous downed trees and we spent more time portaging than boating. Even if this gets cleaned out, there is very little worthwhile whitewater. We ran about a three-mile section, but the best action comes in the last quarter mile. If you are looking for a fun warm-up to Catskill Creek, I would recommend finding an alternate putin. It would be worth it for the last series of drops.
