Swimmer’s Rapid, Lower New River Gorge

SHARE

INFORMATION

RAPID NAME: Swimmer's Rapid

RAPID RATING: Class II

RIVER SECTION: Lower New River Gorge - Cunard To Fayette Station

This Class II rapid might be one of the most memorable for commercial rafting guests. This is a great spot to hop out and take a fun swim through some waves and currents. At lower flows, keep an eye out for the Elevator Shaft, a crease of water dropping over a rock that can deliver some unexpected downtime!
