Above Pipe & Dam

Description: Not far from the grocery store put-in, the rapids on the Upper Cheoah are some of the most difficult on the river, especially because of the trees both in the riverbed and clogging most otherwise usable eddies. Once you see the water diversion pipe, prepare yourself for the vicious lowhead dam that follows immediately below. At this water level, the dam is difficult to avoid and quite dangerous. Power far right or left over the drop.
