River Description

A great short run to combine with the Big Branch, or if you are just passing.

It's a short series of slides and small drops. It is over pretty fast, but is well worth it at least once.

Take out before the bridge in Danby (not Rte. 7). Put in up where it doesn't look any more fun.

To find the run, heading south into Danby, take a right (you would have taken a left for the Big Branch). Then take the next right, then left (passing over the river) This is the take out.


Lat/longitude coordinates are a rough SWAG. There's a bridge downstream of the listed takeout; you may want to takeout there. (Scout and explore!)

On August 28th, 2011 Hurricane Irene struck New England. The resulting floods caused extensive
damage throughout the region, the worst in over 100 years. More than half the rivers in Vermont and
northern New Hampshire recorded their highest flow levels ever. Many roads, guardrails, power
lines, bridges, trees and other debris now litter several rivers throughout the region. River beds
have been scoured and changed course, many new strainers make navigation problematic at best and
downright dangerous at worse. Please realize that the river description you see here may not match
current situation after the floods. Use common sense and when in doubt scout especially on blind
drops. Also, if you run this river in the next year or so please comment on its navigability, even
if there are no problems this will be very helpful. Please report any new strainers or changes to
the rapids that will impact future boating. Thank you,
