New York whitewater, Penlolopen Brook

Orange county, Queensboro Lake to a mile above 9W section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV(V+)     1 miles
  The put-in is not too far from New York-Newark-Edison. The wonderful Orange County scenery and the water flowing gracefully down Penlolopen Brook beats anything. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in New York are harder than the national norm, so keep in mind that rivers here are not as
    easy as elsewhere. No shortage of good hotels, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The Queensboro Lake to a mile above 9W section of Penlolopen Brook in Orange County is 1 miles long
and it is classified as a class IV(V+) section by American Whitewater. This stretch is very short so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that.
