We just ran it down to Stuart's at 7 feet. It only took about 35 minutes! Great ride, rapids are
pretty big at this stage, but still manageable with sit on tops. Big fun!

This section of the Greenbrier is very popular with all manner of river patrons, including tubers,
float fishermen, whitewater boaters and anything else that will float. There are a number of class
2 rapids to spice things up. Towards the end of the trip be on the lookout for Anvil rock, a great
spot for showing off your diving skills ( close to 20 feet high ). On summer days, you'll probably
be sharing this jump rock with a number of inebriated leapers, each intent on proving the validity
of natural selection. Just a little further downstream is Stuart's, a river side restaurant, famed
for it's hot dogs. They will invite you in, soggy or not, and you can have a few libations while
watching the parade of tubes, rafts etc. float by. Great section to cool off in the heat of summer
