Second is a larger problem. About .5 mile after the island obstruction is more fast water with larger rocks. The water rushes over 1 large rock providing a good 3-4 foot drop off. The other side of the river is completely blocked by a huge rock. You would need ropes to lower your boat down. The banks are very steep and overgrown.
Not having ropes I didn't proceed further. Esp considering I was paddling back upstream to get to my car. All in all could both be overcome yes. But it's going to require quite a bit of work.
If you're looking for a relaxing float stick with Bassets Bridge to RT 565. Much easier run.
For those who missed my first Wall Kill report it's very easy to paddle up stream. I paddle this river often. Only need 1 vehicle as it's easy to paddle with and against the current.
Best place to put in is off RT 565 in Vernon. Take RT 23 to Franklin Sussex Auto Mall. At the light by the dealer turn Right onto 565. This is on the opposite side from the quick check. Head up 565 and you will pass over the river. About 1/2 mile after the river is parking on the right side of the road. It's a dirt lot.
I should keep this place a secret as I love the secluded atmosphere, but I feel I need to share.
Lot of ticks in warmer months. Watch the tall grass.
River banks are very slick and muddy
