SELECT A RAPID BELOW
RAPID NAME: Upper Kaymoor
RAPID RATING: Class III+
RIVER SECTION: Lower New River Gorge - Cunard To Fayette Station
This short Class II rapid is named for the ghost town of Kaymoor on the river left side. Kaymoor was the largest town in the Gorge, and its remains stretch from the pool upstream of Upper Kaymoor all the way down to the bottom of Lower Kaymoor. The only feature of any consequence in this rapid is the hydraulic on the right at mid and high levels.
