The scenic beauty of Pennsylvania and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water attract people from near and far. On this section you do get some distance, it's perfect for a one day trip. This section of Roaring Creek - South Branch in Northumberland/Columbia County is 5.8 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class I-III section of whitewater. The average Pennsylvania whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a
bit easier to master than those in other states, so don't forget that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. Roaring Creek - South Branch doesn't have a lot of paddling sections, the Bear Gap to Roaring Creek
section is the only one. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came.
