River Description

Posted 3/31/03 by Jon on NPMB
Cooksburg down to Oak Hill is continuous class 2-3 surfing waves with no real holes to worry about. Makes a nice warm up for continuing from Oak Hill down to the takeout in East Durham. That lower section is slightly bigger (3-4) with incredible surfing. There is always an easy route down if you don't want to run the meat of things.
