Well the rain has stopped – for now! Enjoy any of these sunny, rain-free days that you can. Hiking and mountain biking are a little muddy in spots, and many stream crossings are challenging – but conditions should dry out with a few good sunny days. You would also want to USE CAUTION on any swimming trips that might have been impacted by the high water levels The good news is that all this rain has produced a phenomenal river level for whitewater rafting on the Upper Hudson River. Rafting is always fun – but this is Spring levels with Summer weather and warm water! Get out there! Here’s the weather for the week – and for more weather information visit our weather page.

Rafting, Tubing, Canoes and Kayaks
This is as good as it gets! Recent rains have swelled the Upper Hudson to Spring levels! Enjoy one of the best raft trips in the East with high water and Summer weather – it doesn’t get much better! Find your outfitter, get more information, watch a video. Check with individual outfitters for tubing options. Tubing is usually run from North River to North Creek when the dam release arrives in North River, afternoons – Tue, Thu, Sat and Sun. But with the higher water other times may be possible. For guided and unguided canoe and kayak rentals – check with Beaver Brook Outfitters – 518-251-3394.
