Franklin county, Burke to US 11 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV-V     2 miles
  If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside New York you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so if you're not from around here don't forget that the rivers in this state are less manageable. This stretch of Little Trout River is 2 miles long and is a class IV-V section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all
    set. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling spots. The nature scenery of Franklin County and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. The
starting location is a short drive from Malone, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature will make you glad you came. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well.
