Schoharie Montgomery county, Esperance to Fort Hunter section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     21 miles
  The put-in is not too far from Gloversville, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state 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. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature
    will make you glad you came. The Esperance to Fort Hunter stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all
set. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so why not pack your camp stove too. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. The wonderful New York scenery and the cool fresh water attract people from near and far.
