Put in below Dam #4 and run down to the Shepherdstown, WV boat ramp. At about mile 8.7 below Dam # 4 is Killiansburg Cave on the Maryland (river left) side. Also, the current is slow enough upstream of the Shepherdstown boat ramp that you can paddle upstream until tired and the float downstream back to the boat ramp.
