The Boreas River is located in the central region of the Adirondack State Park. It does not contain any major waterfalls, but has several exquisite little cascades. An easy, flat trail leads along it for a little over a mile. Brown, brook, and rainbow trout are caught here.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
