New York whitewater, Sacandaga River - East Branch

Hamilton Warren county, Moose Mountain to Route 30 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-V     7 miles
  The beautiful scenery of Hamilton/Warren County and the cool fresh water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. There are so many sections to paddle in this river system, the Moose Mountain to Route 30 section is just one of many. Some people
    prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling places. The river winds through the Adirondack Mountains and you get great scenery. This section is long enough to enjoy a
good non stop paddle, it's good length for a morning trip. 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. If you're coming from Gloversville it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people  
coming here. This section of Sacandaga River - East Branch in Hamilton/Warren County is 7 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-V section. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby.

Briefly about the general area:
