I did this section (put in below the Dam) years ago. I did it in an open conoe with a small group. Very small and class 2-3 all the way. Sweepers and strainers can be a problem so you must be ready for that. When the river is SWIFT you CANNOT do this section . Howard Sinclair

According to VA Whitewater there are two sections

Class: 2-3
Distance: 8
Forest Service Road 39 which comes off Route 60 4 miles east of Buena Vista. Says it's not well marked and can be rough.

Take Out:
At the Bridge where 610 crosses the River

Doesn't sound too bad, from what the book says, just ledges, rocks and gravel beds. Pretty consistent class 2 broken by class 3s.

Second Trip:
Class: 2-4
Dist: 9

At 610

Take Out:
Route 650 bridge

Sounds a good bit harder, describes a 5-6 foot waterfall and a final set of two ledges just before take out that are 5-6 foot drops each. The book recommends careful scouting.

Attention Virginia Boaters!

Jason Robertson

During the high waters of Spring 2003, there has been a noticeable increase in reported confrontations between boaters and property owners in Virginia. Please remember to be respectful and courteous to property owners; do not trespass; and avoid confrontation in order to preserve access in the future.
