TIME: 9:30am - 5:00pm (prompt start, estimated end)
We’re paddling the Lower Gauley on Saturday 10/5 and Sunday 10/6. I’d also be interested in Friday 10/4. Class 4. A very beautiful place. Contact me if you’re interested.
Gauley River – Lower Section – Bucklick Branch to Lower Swiss
County Route 22
Victor, WV 25938
Difficulty & Must Haves:
Class III-IV. Do not paddle this river without appropriate training, rescue gear and leadership. River is remote so walking out would be difficult. Dress for the swim!
Nice to Have & Human Interest:
About 12 miles of class III-IV big water. Spectacular scenery, high cliffs. Lots of great surfing but many prefer to use a creek boat.
Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
Shuttle takes about 90minutes; faster if you can start at the take out. 38°13’28.1″N 81°07’11.7″W
