Pigeon, Big East Fork, North Carolina, US
1. Graveyard Fields to Skinny Dip (Unrunnable stretch)
||V+ (for normal flows)
Leland Davis did a nice story on this one.
It can be found here
Expert sponsored hair/creek boaters have been putting on at Graveyard Fields, but advise against
it. The recommended put-in is to use the Mountains to Sea trail. That said, rumors have been
circulating of more runs from the top down. Usually done by the same crew that has multiple runs
of Linville or Upper Raven Fork under thier belts.
Take out where the Big East is crossed by the Hwy 276 bridge.
You will portage more than you kayak on this one, and the portages are truely epic. There are two
waterfalls that must be portaged, one of which that drops almost 200 feet. The other drops 100,
and the top falls is sketchy at best. Subtract those out and you still have a handfull of
unrunnable smaller portages. Basically, don't put in here.
