This trip is for moderately experienced whitewater boaters who are comfortable in Class 2+ rapids. One Class 3 rapid will be encountered near the take-out, but it can be portaged. Expect very cold water temperature, even on a hot summer day—dress accordingly. 

Required equipment: PFD, helmet and whistle. Whitewater kayaks need spray skirts. Recreational boats are not permitted. A towel and dry clothes for afterwards are recommended. Bring water and something for lunch on the river.

We will meet at 10:45 AM at the put in. If you don't have a river pass you'll want to give yourself another ten minutes to pick one up at the NOC Outfitters Store on the right on the way up (map link below), you can buy the required NC river passes ($1/day or $5/year). We should be on the river before noon and off by about 4 PM.

I will be at the Harbison Home Depot at 6am if you want to carpool. 

Please do not just show up on the day of the trip; you must first sign up or contact the trip coordinator. Space will be limited, depending on your abilities and how many safety boaters sign up.

Plan to attend?  Contact the Coordinator.  Please inform the Coordinator in a timely manner if your plans change and you can no longer attend.
