River Description

Robert Larkham provided:

If you are looking to do some creeking in Western Mass then Walker Brook is a must. The difficulty changes dramatically with water levels. At high levels you don't want to swim so make sure you have a good roll. Once you have mastered Walker, step it up a bit to do Factory Brook, a five minute drive away.

The guage correlation is based on the Westfield W. Branch. If you run this section please leave a comment with more flow beta.
