This creek parallels Rte. 93 coming across the top of the mountain into Davis. You barely even
notice Rte. 93 while you are on the creek. This stream is a wonderful run! It is one of the best
scenic runs in the state of West Virginia. The scenery is absolutely spectacular and the creek
alternates between fast current over a sandy bottom and Class 1-2 rapids over a rocky bottom.
Putin on a small tributary about 7 road miles from the Rte. 93 bridge near Davis.
The creek begins very small and is often barely wide enough to turn a boat around. It meanders
back through breathtaking scenery with occassional Class 1 rapids before flattening out with a
sand bottom. About 2-3 miles into the run, the bottom changes back to rock.
You will go under a bridge with a culvert. Below here is a continuous stretch of bouldery Class
1-2 rapids that lasts for over a mile. The stream calms down as you swing next to Rte. 93. There
is a junky rapid underneath a bridge right below here with weird rocks/concrete sticking up.
Below here, the stream settles back into a sand bottom and continues meandering through more
Take out at the Rte. 93 bridge near Davis or continue to the Blackwater. The last stretch to the
Blackwater is not nearly as nice as the rest of the run with lots of scars from civilization
including a pipe that dumps in raw sewage. Beaver Creek empties into the Blackwater just above
the bridge in Davis.
Lat/longitude coordinates (esp. of the putin) are approximate, from online maps.
