The Octoraro starts near Nottingham Pa. and Enters the Susquehanna River just downstream from the Conowingo Dam(RT.1) in Maryland. Octoraro is Native American for "rushing waters" and that tells the story. The section in this video starts at Lees bridge in Pa. and ends at New Bridge in MD. a distance of 7.7 miles .Class 1 to 1 + can be found in this section. The river passes by a Boy Scout camp (the swaying bridges and the only blemish (a quarry) After this begins a long ,and exciting descent thru a rock garden . On this day we paddled both this section and the following section near where it joins the Susquehanna River. The latter section contains up to class II . Unfortunately I ran out of space on my memory card just before the highlight "Little Niagra" Eagles , Herron and even an Otter were spotted. This trip drew paddlers from Clubs in DE , Md. , NJ, and Pa.
