the "entire length." There will always be sections up at the headwaters of a ww river where only steep creek kayaker types are going to try it. And down where the river gets wide and flat, the sort of kayakers who could handle the rapids at the headwaters may simply refuse to do the flatwater. Last year when I paddled the Schroon, we drove along the Hudson ww sections. What is seen from the road is relatively easy. We didn't see anything I would call the "Hudson Gorge." But I could imagine someone in a canoe, or a kayak with ww features, running most of the ww at the upper end of the Hudson and then continuing through Albany (ugh) and on down past Manhattan.
