First Adams Dam to MA-5 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS II 1 miles
The natural beauty of Massachusetts and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This section of Hoosic River is 1 miles long and is a class II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Massachusetts are easier than the national norm, so better not forget that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. A bit of exercise and
just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. This is a very short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in
a few times. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. There are no other sections to paddle along Hoosic River than the First Adams Dam to MA-5 section.
