River Description

Virginia Whitewater, Roger Corbett

Ed Evangelidi testifies:
A fairly flat float trip. Scenery is O.K. but any excitement will come from finding a good swimming hole.

I'm going to be up in that area next week and am looking for a good place to kayak (I'm a
beginner). Is this a good spot? How do I get to it? South of watermelon park is good. You can
paddle up stream or down stream. We have seen Osprey and Bald Eagles feeding in this area many
times. A nice strech of river for can get there from Route 50 west of the river. There
is a sign where the road meets Route 50 at a farm market stand that is about a mile or so west of
the route 7 bridge.

This is my home piece of river. I love it and know it like no other. If you have any questions
about put-ins, take-outs, fishing, locals, lengths of various stretches, suggested floats, etc.
please ask me at Thank you and be safe out there.

This is my "GO TO" route. when ever I need water time and nothing else is running. 25 river miles
from route 50 to route 7. Ran this two weeks ago in about 51/2 6hours. That happens when your
chasing each other around with squirt guns
