New York whitewater, Ausable River - East Branch

Essex county, Hulls Falls to Keene section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-V+     6.3 miles
  The nature scenery of New York and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so don't forget that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This is a pretty decent length section, suitable
