New York whitewater, Squaw Brook

A mile from Sabael section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV+     1 miles
  The put-in location is a short drive from Gloversville. The average New York whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number
    of paddling rivers. The A mile from Sabael section is the only paddling section along Squaw Brook. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. This section of Squaw Brook in -blank- County is 1 miles long
and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III-IV+ section. This is a very short stretch so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. The beautiful Adirondack Mountains scenery is an added bonus. The natural beauty of -blank- County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a  
short distance then no problem and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.

Briefly about the general area:
Go for a hike on the Sucker Brook Trail; a day at Moffit Beach is time well spent. But wait, there's more amusing stuff to do in the Adirondack Mountains. Going for a hike on the Northville Lake Placid Trail is always a great adventure, and the nice people of Indian Lake like to hang out close by. This is such a fun river. For the period of the long summer days at Squaw Brook highs are typically in the 70's. Summer nighttime lows drop down to the 50's.
