Fed by 2 lakes, this reach takes longer to run and runs longer than everything else in the area.
Starting on the Bog River with 4 miles of flatwater ending with a dam, the run gets tight quickly. There are a number of Class 4 ledges, more flatwater and then a series of Class 4+ to Class 5 drops. From here it will be pretty flat until the finale at Bog River Falls which dumps into Tupper Lake at the takeout.
See the New York Exposed Volume 1 for the full description.
Put in is incorrect, should be listed either on the southern side of Round Lake or the actual outlet on the north end of Round Lake. You can paddle across the lake once the ice is out, or hike in on a snowy/muddy dirt road to get to the headwaters.

Permits are not required for this reach.
Find Route 421. It is between the towns of Tupper lake and Long Lake and splinters off Route 30.
Take 421 west towards Horseshoe Lake. The road will make a 90* turn left and then go over a bridge. This is your Takeout
Continue up 421. It will snake around the South shore of Horseshoe Lake. As it begins to turn right (North) there will be a turn on your left. Turn left onto Circle Road. Put in where it ends at the bridge.

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.
