River Description

 This Brook is quite small. Look for it to come up late fall when leaves are gone and the ground is cold, during the winter, and very early spring. The length is a little less than two miles (although it seemed longerwhen I paddled it) if you take out by the Deli on & Lakes Drive just upstream of the Ramapo. I guess you tack on another 0.20 miles if you paddle to the Dam on the Ramapo. Most of this run is fairly scenic, particuliarly after you pass under the secound bridge. At this point, you'll soon notice there's a hiking trail with red blazes on your left, the road is far enough distance to your right. If you hike the red trail from Reaves Meadow visitors center/ hikers parking lot, you'll be able to scout this section which is not visible from the road. It's not really important to do so since there's no ledge drops, nasty holes ect just always keep on guard for strainers. The section before this can be viewed when driving to the put-in by turning on to Johnston Town Rd.
