Gauge Description:

 The day I ran this the Ramapo at Suffern was 2250 cfs. At this level it was basically CL2+. Although not CL3, however, at that level good eddie in skills are important since there's a few creek wide strainers. When I have ran the upper section, far more difficult even at lower levels, this section had a considerable amount of flat so I'm not sure what level you'll need for it to be fun. However, if the top section, listed above here is running, you'll definatly be able to paddle it. There's no guage for this Brook. To get an idea of difficulty, walk upstream from the put-in, see the rapid just after the last drop? That will be the most challanging of the day, unless you paddle down to the Ramapo and paddle down to the dam on the Ramapo. Both those rapids I call CL3, but ya don't have to paddle either. The dam is a few hundred yards down stream of the confluence of the Stony and Ramapo. Other than that at normal levels CL1-2.
