Starting at the put-in the run is a rocky class 4 creek. This flattens and the run continues with boogy water until the gradient picks up at Port Henry.
Below this stretch is a (unrun?) gorge. It is extremely steep and likely unrunnable, However there is a chance for a first decent. It is located directly behind Leroy's Towing and Repair at 3093 Broad Street in Port Henry. Follow a dirt road just west of the garage back to an old dam.
Catch this one immediately after a BIG rain.
