River Description

Scout at each bridge before putting on. This is where the majority of the drops happen to be.

Starts with a dam drop followed by another drop you may want to walk. Then boogy down for some ledges just before the next bridge. From here the run builds as it gets steep and technical. Wood will either make or break the trip. Strainers will be a major problem if they are in the wrong places. Be sure to scout the double drop at the next bridge. Portage on the left if necessary.



See the New York Exposed Vol. 1 guide book for the full description.
