The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state are often tougher than in other states, so don't forget that the rivers in this state are less manageable. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but if
    you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Malone, as you can see on the road map further down. The Mt. View Lake to Hatch Brook section of Salmon
River in Franklin County is 3.9 miles long and it is classified as a class II-IV section by American Whitewater.

Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good rivers for that around here. There are plenty of other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. This  
is a short paddling stretch so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over.
