It's The Biggest Whitewater Of The Year

Fall Gauley Season

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, Upper Gauley River rapids in a wilderness setting.
