  This stretch of Whiteday Creek is 10.7 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class I-III section. The scenic beauty of West Virginia and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more forgiving, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. No need to look hard for hotels,
    but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The Confluence of Cherry Run to Monongahela River section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. If you're coming from Morgantown it's
not a long drive at all to the put-in location, as you can see on the road map further down. Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. This section is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so pack your sleeping bag. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground.
