New York whitewater, Schroon River

Essex county, North Hudson bridge to Schroon Falls section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     5 miles
Where can we get information on the Schroon river and can you start upstream (at what distance) and paddle down to Schroon lake.  What level is such a river 5 miles North? Says Richard Edson

The starting location is a reasonable drive from Glens Falls, as you can see on the road map further down. The North Hudson bridge to Schroon Falls stretch of Schroon River in Essex County is 5 miles long and is a class II section of whitewater
    according to American Whitewater. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in New York are harder than the national norm, so don't forget that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere.
This stretch is mid length, it's good length for a morning trip. The nature scenery of New York and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The wild scenery of the Adirondack Mountains is great. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way there are lots of good places for that around here. There are so many sections to paddle in this river system,  
the North Hudson bridge to Schroon Falls section is just one of many. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set.

Briefly about the general area:
Have a good hiking adventure along the Peaked Hill Trail It's always good to pop by Linsey Falls. Now, you may assume that's a load but there's even more fun stuff to do here in the Adirondack Mountains. Going for a hike along the Spectacle Pond Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this vicinity.
