Essex Hamilton Warren county, North River to Riparius section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     13 miles
  This section of Hudson River is 13 miles long and has been rated as a class II-III section by American Whitewater. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in New York are often more challenging than in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. The starting point is not too far from Glens Falls, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you
    wonít get lost. This stretch is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature are sure to keep you coming
back for more. The beautiful Adirondack Mountains scenery is an added bonus. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good spots for that around here. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. The nature scenery of New York and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This river system  
is full of great paddling stretches, the North River to Riparius stretch is just one of them. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp.
