Whitewater — Cheat River Narrows
This section can be run during low water times much of the summer as a class II-II+ section, but is big and pushy at high water levels (Class III). 3 to 5 miles. The road along the river makes for an easy shuttle (by bicycle or car) and there are many places to put in or take out. Commercial outfitters offer trips on this section. Map (pdf).
Directions from Morgantown
Rt. 7 through Masontown, Reedsville and Kingwood to Rt. 72 south (along the river). The take out is at Pringle Run bridge, several miles south of Camp Dawson. Put-ins are located along Rt. 72 toward Rowlesburg.
