Tohickon Creek - Ralph Stover Park  to Delaware River

Tohickon 3+ at 2' There is a lot of playing on this creek, which runs for a day or so after hard rains, particularly outside of foliage season. Scheduled releases in March and November are generally extremely crowded. Gets more difficult above 3.5, and floodstage is at 5'. Above 3.5' the last half becomes more continuous, and swims can become long and thoroughly unpleasant.
