♦︎ Shallow Riffle

CAUTION. Shallow riffle. 40.569876, -75.998213

Always use caution and scout ahead when approaching problem areas.

The better route around this island is on the RR side, but even at normal water levels, this channel can be a shallow “rock garden” that sometimes needs to be walked. To attempt to paddle through this riffle, try entering in the middle of the river and work your way to RL as you exit.
