River Description


Brian Nelson testified:
Eagle Creek is almost directly across Fontana Lake from Fontana Marina. It's essentially class two for two miles upstream. Beyond that? The Eagle Creek Trail runs up to the AT along Gunna Creek, near Thunderhead Mtn. Great camping from Fontana up. Many stream crossings up the trail. Gnarly when high!

Hiked this creek up to the AT and to me it looks like it would be a blast.... with a horrible hike in. The top 2 or 3 miles are really steep. IV+ for the top seems about right. With the big hike in it's probably not worth it.
