River Description

See Dennis Squires' New York Exposed book for the description.
According to the book, this creek is as yet Unrun. Anyone up for a First Descent???

Likely to stay unrun. Squires says it's way too woody--twice. But if you do grab a First D, please add a comment (and a few gnarlistic photos) here to immortalize your story.

If the topo map is accurate it looks as if the last section of Styles (from O'Connell Ln to Rte 9N) drops 740 feet in 2.23 miles. I can't even begin to imagine what that would look like with a runnable water level. That's got to be sick.
