  The starting location is a short drive from Pittsburgh, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so keep in mind that rivers in this state are less demanding. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good places for that around here. The Enlow to
    Groveton stretch of Montour Run in Pennsylvania is 11 miles long and is a class II-III section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The natural beauty of Pennsylvania and the beautiful way the water current moves
down the stream beats anything. There are nice comfortable hotels here, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so why not pack your camping stuff too. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. A good workout and spending some quality time in nature have people coming from far and near.
