Recommendations from Adrian VandenBout.
This is another of the Finger Lakes Outlet streams, many of which are runnable. (See the Canandaigua, Keuka, and Owasco Outlets for other examples.)
This run sports two great class III-IV drops. One is perfect roadside park'n'huck (Papermill Falls, on Papermill Road). The other, Triphammer Falls, has been accessed and run frequently by the young members of FLOW, after asking landowner permission. Papermill Road (and Park, right after the Falls), would make a great takeout for a run. Triphammer is a mile upstream.Click here for a description and some pictures of Papermill Falls.

Ask landowner permission before accessing this badboy!
Great for Park-&-Huck. Park on river left off Papermill Road.
