Hudson River Gorge Guidebook
Beginning on the Indian River and continuing through the Hudson River Gorge, this run provides a 15-mile wilderness rafting experience with tremendous whitewater and stunning Adirondack landscape. It’s the state’s longest length of whitewater and is regarded as the best commercial Class IV in New York.
The Hudson has three distinct seasons offering a variety of rafting experiences. In the spring, the whitewater is the largest with challenging Class IV. During the summer, as flows mellow out and temperatures warm up, the rapids become tamer but still offer Class IV excitement. Finally in the fall, the river corridor sees far fewer people and you can see the landscape change with the season.
Interestingly, this trip starts on the Indian River which has scheduled releases of Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The releases make it possible to raft the 2.5 miles on the Indian River to the Hudson confluence. The Hudson itself is runnable without the releases, but access is the limiting factor. Hence, the start on the Indian River.
