The Boreas River in the Newcomb Area is excellent for paddling.


During the spring melt.

Start at Cheney Pond. At the beginning there are many sets of rapids with a negotiable waterfall in season, and it ends with a long stretch of trickier rapids. In between, there are stunning photo opportunities that reminds us why there is a "Hudson River School" of painting. Ends at Minerva Bridge.

8 miles, Class III-V water
