McKees Half Falls, Susquehanna River, PA

The most technical single rapid of the 50 mile stretch we paddled. A quick scout from a rock in the river and then we ran through it smoothly with no problems. The scattered rapids and riffles over the next 30 miles were actually more abusive to the boat. Lots of rock gardens and scratchy rapids with very little power to manuver the boat quickly.

Two humans and a dog paddling 50 miles over 2.5 days down the Middle Susquehanna from Hummels Wharf to City Island in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Very nice river despite it's proximity to Harrisburg and other urban features. Of course part of the appeal was paddling down the more rural river right into dowtown Harrisburg. Next time we do the 80 river miles from Harrisburg to the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.
