River Description



In the early 90's David Tillman, Scott McKlesky, and Will Reeves went exploring along the Brevard Fault Line to see if there was any good whitewater.
Some good runs were found, and some not so good ones. This was one of the not so good ones. The river would be fun and challenging but has a small watershed. Most of the rapids are ledges with the exception of one big boulder garden. If you live in Carroll County and are looking for something different to do, then this might be a good one.

It might be better to estimate this flow from the Snake Creek gauge, which is nearer. Even the Dog
gauge is closer than the Nickajack guage. I have not run Whooping Creek, but I have hiked the
length of it from the bottom end. With plenty of water, it should be a good run. Access is the main
issue.
