I just got out of class, and noticed that an AW page has been created for the Laurel Creek Slides. Please feel free to use what ever pictures you want from Downstream Movement on the AW page. The very first post on my site is a photo of me running Trashcan, it is on the same creek and is far game for the AW page as well. I prefer a bit more water to run Trashcan than the slides above, so use your own judgement. I hope evryone who wants to run the Laurel Creek Slides gets a chance to. Directions are easy...Go down 321 till Laurel Creek Road. Go up that road until you see some gradient and fun drops. Unload your boat, and run the shit! Simple as that.
I'm going to go study for my WFR class. See you on the Slides!!!

Look for the watauga to be stomping. As with any small stream look for it to run off quickly.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
