Swimmer’s Rapid, Lower New River Gorge
SELECT A RAPID BELOW
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!
