Back Creek - WV 9 to McCoy's Ferry

Back Creek, West Virginia, US


WV 9 to McCoy's Ferry

Usual Difficulty II(III) (for normal flows)
Length 8 Miles

River Description

Very pristine and scenic with some strainers and always changing you might even get out and walk to the next hole. Grate for a slow day with kids or beginners.
BUT when it’s near the top of its banks it is one hell of a ride.
Join the kids and me.

Don't know how to link the gauge into the AW page, but I think this is the right gauge for this
section: Paddled it about 140 cfs (?) yesterday and
was a little scrapey but not bad. Peepers were peeping!

Well I'm going to start a new year. So for 2004 the water is way to cold for me but looks like we
will have a good time so far… if the weather holds.
