As a way to promote knowledge, we’ll post relevent info and video that depicts the character and nature of individual creeks and rivers. To kick things off we have the Orbeton Stream Virtual Guide.
Here Josh Geib, and the Send It, ME crew, show us down Orbeton Stream at a low flow. There is a guage on the bridge at the take out, and it read about 2ft on this run.
Orbeton Stream is a tributary to the Sandy Stream (Smalls Falls near the Phillips and Madrid reach) and can be located on Map 19. Put in is on the reeds Mills Road, take out on Toothaker Rd. below the bridge.
At the low level depicted this run is class IV. However, it will get beefy and more consequential at higher levels.
Overall a great River with continuous boulder garden style rapids. ENJOY!
