Whitewater rafting and kayaking in New York is often tougher than elsewhere, so if you're not
from around here don't forget that rivers here are less forgiving. The Riparius to Glen stretch of Hudson River in New York is 8 miles long and is a class III section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The put-in location is a short drive from Glens Falls, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this is  
an area with plenty of rivers for that. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. The Riparius to Glen section is one of many paddling sections in this river system. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. On this section you do get some distance, it's good length for a morning trip. The beauty of the Adirondack Mountains is a great plus for this river.
