♦︎ Remnants of 2 Felix Dams

CAUTION. Remnants of  2 old Felix Dams. 40.392337, -75.971435

Always use caution and scout ahead when approaching problem areas.

There is unpredictable flow and debris through this area, as a result of the 2007 removal of  two 19th-century dams.

To avoid these rapids, exit river at Upper Felix Dam Park landing on RL (40.392866,-75.970931), portage 0.3 mile on the Schuylkill River Trail, then re-enter the river at the Lower Felix Dam Park landing (40.390799,-75.967501) below the rapids.

Best route through these Class I+ rapids is diagonally (left to right) in the left center of the center channel, and then RR to exit.
