New York whitewater, Balm of Gilead Brook

Warren county, Barton Mines Road to Hudson River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS IV-V+     2.5 miles
  The starting point is not too far from Gloversville, as you can see on the road map further down. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in New York are often tougher than in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good spots for that around here. The beautiful scenery
    of New York and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The Barton Mines Road to Hudson River stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system.
A good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. This is a bit of a short stretch so better bring some good walking shoes. The Barton Mines Road to Hudson River section of Balm of Gilead Brook in New York is 2.5 miles long and has been rated as a class IV-V+ section by American Whitewater. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. The river winds through the Adirondack Mountains and you  
get great scenery. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.
