THE WATAUGA GORGE
The Watauga Gorge is the most extreme trip we offer. We require that you be at least 18 years of age, physically fit, and healthy. This trip is for athletes! If you are looking for an extreme trip that compares to nothing else, look no further! This trip is done in one-person inflatable kayaks and small rafts whenever the water is high enough. You may not be able to remember what you got for Christmas this year, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that you will NEVER forget.
This is a world class adventure. It’s an extreme river that travels over 5 miles of gorgeous mountainous wilderness and has continuous Class III, IV, and V rapids the entire way. The numerous Class IV and V rapids bear such names as Ass Kicker, Hydro, Up Against the Wall, Edge of the World, Dianas Ledge, Knuckles, Tennessee The Hard Way, and Heavy Water, to name just a few.
