A two mile section of the Toxaway above Lake Toxaway was run friday by Craig Geist and Dean Scofield after an ungodly amount of rainfall in the area. It started below a 75' falls called raven rock (i think) and ended at lake Cardinal a small lake above lake toxaway. The run contains alot of steep sliding blind drops and at least two portages. The final portage is a sixty foot cascade with a low footbridge. Has anyone ever heard of this section being run before?
From Moheinous on boatertalk: "The section starts at a hiking trail down to Raven rock(?)falls and ends at lake Cardnail, just above Lake Toxaway. It's a two mile section of steep slides all requiring difficult scouting. At least two rapids were portaged. One with an immpossible to avoid undercut and a 60 ft cascade with a low footbridge at the end. A hiking trail parrallels the run.The run requires massive amounts of rain. If the Horsepasteur and Whitewater are high, it might be worth a look."
This was the weekend hurricane isabel came thru. All the local creeks were out of there banks.
