There are two spots in on the south fork of the catawba gaston county that I have looked at as I have been driving through. Both of them are short so you can park and run them.

One is high shoals immediately below the dam at the town of high shoals. I stopped by the bridge over the river on old hardin road. I wasn't able to walk all the way up to just below the dam due to the water being high and there is an old factory that is fenced in, blocking getting a better walk in to just below the dam. There were a few people clearing overgrown growth on the factory grounds so I was afraid of getting busted for trespassing. From what I can see at the bridge, it looks like few good slides right below the dam, then short ledges right before the bridge. Right before the bridge the river flows through small trees and brush at high water.

See also S.Fk.Catawba, McAdenville for the other spot mentioned.
