Lower Lehigh River - Penn Haven

Description

Class II

 Former site of a small railroad junction town, the Lehigh makes a left turn, and the current goes past a high rock retaining wall on the right. A flipping rock juts out from the wall, with a nice eddy behind it and a surfing wave alongside the eddy.

 Across from the rock is a nice lunch spot on the left shore. Below is a railroad bridge and Quakake Creek coming in from the right side. At high water the two bridge piers are placed perfectly for pinning and wrapping unwary rafts. Black Creek to Quakake to the Lehigh is a nice Class III creek run from Weatherly after a heavy rain.
