bronx river, canoe, West Farms Rapids, river access
West Farms Rapids Park offers easy vehicular access from E. 179th St. and is a critical link in the Bronx River Greenway.
CAUTION! 180th Street to East Tremont Avenue is the most challenging section of river. The west side of the East Tremont Ave. Bridge is impassible in all but the highest water.
Although only a few blocks long, a rocky bottom and drop in elevation here create small rapids that require close attention to avoid capsizing. Stay east to pass under the East Tremont Avenue Bridge.
