Wilson Creek - A) Upper Wilson

Wilson Creek, North Carolina, US


A) Upper Wilson

Usual Difficulty IV (for normal flows)

River Description

1.5 mile hike to put-in.

AFWS Current Rainfall Data for Caldwell County.
Gauge 1835, Edgemont, is at the take-out for this section.


Upper Wilson actually starts above US-221 on Grandfather Mountain.  Seldomly (if ever) run it is just a pile of boulders all the way down to the confluence with Little Wilson.  From Little Wilson down to the traditional put-in for Upper Wilson (on the trail out of Gragg, NC) are several more portages and lots of wood.  If you are the adventurous type then run Little Wilson from FR192 down to Wilson creek and run Upper Wilson down to Edgemont, NC
