Passaic River and Great Brook

Monday, November 4, 2002

weather: cloudy, cool

canoeists: Bruce Taterka, Jürgen Englerth

This short trip on the Passaic River and Great Brook though the Great Swamp marked the birth of our project „Passaic River – source to mouth“.

We put in at the fishermen's parking lot near White Bridge and ascended the Passaic and Great Brook to Pleasant Plains Road, where we turned around to return to White Bridge.

The water level was exceptionally low, the channel narrow and several times blocked by deadfalls which required short portages.
