New York whitewater, Sacandaga River

Hamilton county, Christine Falls to East Branch section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS III-V+     7.5 miles
  The nature scenery of New York and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came. This is a pretty decent
    length section, good for a one day paddling trip. The Christine Falls to East Branch section is one of many paddling sections in this river system. The starting location is a short drive from Gloversville, there's a road
map further down the page with more info on that. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good rivers. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. The beautiful Adirondack Mountains scenery is an added bonus. The Christine Falls to East Branch section of Sacandaga River in Hamilton County is 7.5 miles long and has been rated as a class III-V+ section by American Whitewater. Not  
too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
