Get ready for a wet and wild ride down the Black River. Packed into 8 miles of river are no less than 14 sets of rapids where mother nature does her best to tip you over and toss you about.
The "Big Water" Black provides an intensity not found on many New York rivers. With water splashing over your face you must perform difficult maneuvers as you negotiate threatening hydraulics and exploding waves.
The possibility of an unexpected swim or an overturned raft exists throughout the trip!It's more than a day of exhilarating whitewater, it's a full day of fun!
It's stretching back in the hot sun as your raft drifts quietly down river! It's floating in the warm water, supported by your life vest! It's water fights and splashing!It's rolling down the river with a great bunch of people! It's the cold beverages and hot barbecue at the end of the day when the river trip turns into a river party with the camaraderie of friends and family!
