Pennsylvania whitewater, Brodhead Creek

Monroe county, Canadensis to mouth section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     21.2 miles
Took the section of the Broadhead starting at Rte 447 today, this was definitely not a good idea! At least 3 different sections were completely blocked by downed trees / dams to the point we had to get out and walk around. Do not take this section! Says C Braun

Have you paddled the 21+ miles on this? If not, do you know anyone who has? Where are the CL3 spots on this river? Is the CL3 on this easier than most CL3 on NY? Says Jay Dee
