White Water Rafting
Hudson River Gorge
The Hudson River Gorge is rated one of America's top ten white water rivers.  It consists of 13-miles of very turbulent
waters which provide a series of difficult Class V rapids, with numerous souse holes and powerful hydraulics.  Periodic
releases from Indian Lake maintains high water levels in the  Gorge through out the summer.  
This is a wonderful adventure trip for the whole family, summer water levels are not as radical as the spring and fall trips,
but still packs a good punch and provides a lot a fun.  There are numerous
outfitters that provide trips down the river on
release days, they all provide lunch on the river and many provide a snack or meal after the trip.  

Warning:   This area should only be traveled with a reputable outfitter unless you are an expert paddler.

and ledge drops along the way.  The river has beautiful scenery and some wildlife sightings.
