A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. The average New York whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so you'd better keep in mind that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you  
might end up sleeping in your car. Whitewater paddling here in the Adirondack Mountains is a great experience.
