Big Branch Brook

Stretch: Picnic Area to Mt Tabor Rd
Difficulty: Class IV to V
Distance: 1.35 miles (+1.4 for the Upper section)
Flows: Look at the West River at Londonderry for a correlation. 1,600 cfs is optimum for a medium/good flow. I think ~800 is bare minimum. I would guess around 2,000 is getting big. We had 1,500 cfs and felt it was a great flow. Visit the flow page

Take-out: Super easy, as you come into the small town of Danby on route 7, look for Mt Tabor Ave. Go East on it for 1.0 miles to the bridge over the brook. This is take-out.

Put-in: Continue 1.7 miles to the parking and picnic area that will be on your right. There is a trail that leads down to the water. If you want to do some hiking for extra miles, continue 0.4 miles further to the parking at the Long Trail / Appalachian Trail. Hike the Long Trail to where it crosses the river in about 1 mile.
