Catawba, South Fork, North Carolina, US
||I (for normal flows)

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.
