The Legendary Upper Gauley River

Giant rapids define the Upper Gauley

Between foamy white peaks of waves coursing through this narrow canyon lie huge drops and dramatic water features. This stretch of river demands all the paddling power you’ve got. You’ll be rewarded with the ride of your life through one crazy rapid after another. Iron Ring and Sweets Falls await, with enough whitewater fun to blow your mind every time.

Rafting the Upper Gauley River is the peak whitewater experience for East Coast rafting. Maybe the country. It’s rafting so good that it’s known around the world. Running the Gauley is a milestone, a tradition, and a pilgrimage. For many, it’s also a reunion.

Why? Because it’s the one time out of the year, thanks to a scheduled dam release, that river runners can experience 26 miles of guaranteed, awe-inspiring, whitewater rapids in a wilderness setting.

Seeking BIG whitewater rafting? Let’s talk mighty Upper Gauley.
