There's a magnificent type IV-V stretch of whitewater nearby on Rockaway River, the 0.7-mile-from-start-to-finish Below Falls to Route 287 segment. It may be said that this stretch of Rockaway River is a place for experienced paddling. If you're trying to find a type II-IV whitewater part to paddle, you're in luck; the Route 51 to Alt Route 511 segment is a perfect 16-mile-from-beginning-to-end piece of Pequannock
River. For whitewater kayaking and rafting this part of Pequannock River is an enjoyable place. Check restrictions in advance of a trip on the whitewater, otherwise it's not secure.
