    Gauley River Rafting
    The Gauley River in West Virginia is the crown jewel rafting trip in the east. The flows are regulated by Summersville Dam. Gauley Season begins in early September and continues into October. During the 6 week period of Gauley Season, a Gauley River rafting trip is the most thrilling. During this time, you will experience huge waves and vigorous rapids. The scenic quality and inaccessibility make a Gauley River whitewater rafting trip the premier trip in the east. 

    Some Gauley River rafting outfitters run trips on the Gauley River in the spring and summer as well. However these trips depend on the river flows.

    The main rafting trips on the Gauley River are the upper and lower. The upper Gauley river rafting trip is intense and usually requires clients with experience. The lower Gauley river whitewater rafting trip is exciting but more mellow and is good for first timers.

    However, some Gauley River rafting outfitters put together some other combinations of rafting trips depending on water levels and time of year. Check with a Gauley River rafting outfitter that we feature on this site for your options.
