Q) Do I have to run the waterfalls?
Great Falls - Most people put-in below the base of two staged Great Falls. For those looking for a bit more excitement, this roadside attraction is waiting for you right off the town square. The classic huck is a rite of passage for Watertown paddlers and is on the checklist of most any waterfall enthusiast.
Walking distance from the Hole Brothers playspot and directly above the put-in for the canyon run, Great Falls can be combined with other Black River fun or done as a park & huck. The overhead bridge provides an aerial view for easy scouting and breathtaking pictures.
Sitting in the pool beneath the pounding curtain and high canyon walls, you won't believe that you're floating below Watertown's city center.
Glen Park Falls - Just beyond historic Watertown's city limits, roadside Glen Park Falls marks the entrance of spectacular Black River Canyon. Those running the river will be able to contemplate the falls and its lead-in rapid at the necessary portage around Dángèr Dam. The falls is a popular Black River photo-op where crowds of lunching rafters will cheer you on as you take the plunge. Due to the clean lip and soft landing, Glen Park Falls is a popular first-time huck for new Aquaholics and is a place to try some off-the-lip freestlye moves. Whether you intend to huck the falls or not, you are sure to enjoy the natural beauty of the misty falls below the high canyon walls.
Poop Chute - In the gorge below the Brownville Biosphere and on the Black River Canyon run is an optional line that runs through a breach in the dam from an old mill. The exhilirating Poop Chute is a fun little challenge to spice up the canyon.
Bovine Falls - At high water, this 40 footer starts pumping enough flow to drop into the Black River Canyon in the gorge at the end of the main river run. The few folks that have run this drop have had clean lines. If the storm clouds have been dropping lots of local rain, this falls will be ready for action.
