Every fall Julie loads up her truck for the 1600 mile migration to the Gauley River and she’s not the only one. For six weeks raft guides come from all over the world to guide one of the hardest commercial rafting trips in the world.
The Upper Gauley River drops over 335 feet in fewer than 13 miles. The essence of big-water rafting excitement, it’s huge volume, technical, gut-wrenching whitewater from start to finish. This intense whitewater experience is not recommended for the timid or inexperienced.
