Gauley Season - Weekends In September And October

Gauley River Rafting

Deep in the mountains of West Virginia a whitewater beast is waiting to be untethered. The Gauley River in West Virginia is a river like no other. Starting Friday, September 8th 2,800 cubic feet per second of whitewater will rage down a remote canyon through the Gauley River National Recreation Area. This deep gorge is riddled with Class V+ rapids, graced with spectacular scenery and should be challenged by only the boldest adventurers.

For those who have rafted the New River Gorge, or have challenged other rivers, the Upper Gauley is your chance to experience unchained, world class whitewater. You’ll run a 12′ waterfall called Sweet’s Falls.  You’ll break through a massive standing wave called Hawaii Five-O then into a 1/4 mile long rapid. You’ll even get the chance to slap your paddle on Pillow Rock as you ride the entire river up, onto and past this house sized boulder.

If you’d like a slightly tamer ride, with bigger waves than the New River, check out the Lower Gauley River. This lesser traveled, lower half of the Gauley River offers two Class V rapids, soaring riverside sandstone cliffs and awesome wilderness scenery. Both trips offer complimentary riverside lunch and enough bragging rights to last until next year’s Gauley Season! Rafts are filling quickly. Don’t miss your chance to tackle the mighty Gauley River.

2023 Gauley Season Release dates:
September 8-11th, 15-18th, 22- 25th and 29-30th
October 1-2nd, 6-8th, 14-15th and 21-22nd
