New York whitewater, Jimmy Creek

Hamilton county, Along trail to West Br. Sacandaga River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV-V+     2 miles
  The nature scenery of Hamilton County and the playfulness of the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in New York are often more challenging than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but
    if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. The Along trail to West Br. Sacandaga River
stretch of Jimmy Creek in New York is 2 miles long and is a class IV-V+ section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Jimmy Creek doesn't have a lot of paddling stretches, the Along trail to West Br. Sacandaga River stretch is the only one. This is a bit of a short stretch so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. There's camping available near Jimmy Creek.
