Pennsylvania whitewater, Casselman River

Garrett (MD) Somerset (PA) county, Markleton to Harnedsville section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     6.2 miles
definitely a beautiful area! great for those just entering the sport OR for some time to chill. similar in difficulty to middle yough but no duldrums, well, there are just less noticeable because of the beauty and not quite as dull (or long). Says barb

Markleton to Fort Hill is an absolutely beautiful section of river. i highly recommend it but i may be biased since i own some property on the river. very remote except near the bridges
    where you'll find a few houses. other than that, you have the railroad and the recently opened bike trail. a curse and a blessing. Says Rick

sections, the Markleton to Harnedsville section is just one of them. This is a pretty decent length section, it's perfect for a one day trip.
