West Virginia whitewater, Greenbrier River

Pocahontas county, Cass to Clover Lick section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS I-II     10 miles
 
Went from cass to cloverlick yesterday. River was great, especially for beginner kayakers like us. Took roughly 2- 2 1/2 hrs. Says Amanda

Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often easier than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Clarksburg, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the
    page. This stretch of Greenbrier River is 10 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. There's camping available near Greenbrier River. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking
or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so pack your camping stuff. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while are great reasons to come.

Briefly
 
about the general area:
There's good hiking along the Hill Top Trail, and naturally, everyone loves Cass Railroad State Park. The Scarlet Oak Trail offers hiking at its best; everybody close by loves skiing at Snowshoe. This river is a great place to visit. Seneca State Forest is worth taking a look at if you're at Greenbrier River, and some good nature is available in Seneca State Forest. People from Cass love to come to Greenbrier River. A great deal of rainfall falls at Greenbrier River. Through the month of July you get the most rain around here, and February on the other hand is the driest.
