Shenango River in Pennsylvania

Trip Overview

Current was slow as expected. We gauge flow based on military site that monitors dam output: Today's output was 260 CFS.

West Middlesex to Pulaski has a few spots of very mild novice friendly "Rapids" which make this section a little more adventurous. No down trees, very nice float. Took about 2.5 hours of little paddling mostly floating to reach Pulaski Bridge at 551/208.

208 to Nashau was also nice float. Mild paddling and we reached exit point approx 1.5 hours

A little over 10 miles in all. We will be doing the West Middlesex to Nashau run again!!!


Cemented boat docks at both entry and exit points




Put in off of Penn Ave West Middlesex, Pa
